Distribution of Allotment Funds
Distribution of Teacher Incentive Allotment funds will comply with state law and Texas Education Agency guidance (TEC Section 48.114(i)(1)(A)).
Funding for teachers designated as Recognized, Exemplary, and Master under TIA will flow to districts, which in turn must spend at least 90% of the funds on teacher compensation on the campuses where the designated teachers work. Statute states that allotment funds are not considered a property right.
A designated teacher will receive 90% of the allotment generated by their designation which will be paid as a stipend in addition to the current salary schedule.
The district will provide teachers with a one-time payout in August after winter class roster submission.
In the event a designated teacher leaves before the Class Roster Winter Submission, neither the campus nor the designated teacher will receive TIA funds.
In the event a designated teacher is hired by the district prior to Class Roster Winter Submission, both the campus and designated teacher will receive the TIA funds generated by that designated teacher.
