TIA Overview
The Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) is a key part of House Bill 3, dedicated to recruiting, supporting, and retaining highly effective teachers in all schools, with particular emphasis on high-needs and rural schools. Districts that choose to participate are charged with developing local teacher designation systems that measure teacher effectiveness based, at a minimum, on both teacher observation and student growth data. These systems must be submitted to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) for approval and undergo a data validation process, which will be conducted by Texas Tech University.
Developing a local teacher designation system requires significant planning, robust stakeholder engagement, adequate time to prepare all necessary materials for rollout, and a strong communication plan prior to the first implementation year. The first school year a district collects teacher effectiveness data in accordance with their local designation plan is called the data capture year. The teacher effectiveness data collected during the data capture year will be reviewed as part of the district approval process.
Stakeholder feedback
Depending on how you plan to capture feedback, We can tailor this block for a google form or an external link. You would just have to let me know what you need this block to do.
