The Teacher Incentive Allotment

Overview

Teacher Incentive Allotment

The Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) was passed during the 86th legislative session as part of House Bill 3 (HB 3).

The intended purpose of the Teacher Incentive Allotment was to provide additional funding for effective teachers with a prioritized focus on those serving in high-need areas and rural school districts. Through the TIA program, teachers may receive a designation based on their level of performance and student growth. 

The district’s strategic priorities include recruiting and retaining high-quality teachers. We believe the fiscal incentives provided through TIA will support goal attainment and allow us to reward outstanding D’Ville teachers. Duncanville ISD is in the process of developing a local designation system to define how this program will fairly and equitably work for our teachers before applying for TIA funding as part of cohort G in spring 2024. 

The district is currently working with a TIA planning committee consisting primarily of teachers to develop our local approach and will post our plan for stakeholder feedback once drafted.

Duncanville ISD TIA Planning Committee 
 

The Teacher Incentive Allotment Planning Committee members for Duncanville ISD were selected through an application process. A diverse group of 30 members were selected with 60% of the committee being teachers. The committee consists of classroom teachers and non-classroom teachers from each grade level. There are also campus administrator representatives for each grade level and key central administrators who play a role in the local designation system process. 
 

To be considered for the committee, applicants had to have a valid teaching certification and have completed 1 year of service in Duncanville ISD or had participated in a TIA program in another public school district. They also had to be available to attend the scheduled meetings, commit to serving for at least 2 years, and be in overall good standing with the district.
