Teacher Incentive Allotment

TIA Logo
Weatherford ISD is excited to announce participation in the Texas Teacher Incentive Allotment Program. The TIA was created by the Texas Legislature as a part of House Bill 3 as a pathway to increase teacher pay and help attract and retain highly effective teachers. All teachers are encouraged to participate in seeking designations for the TIA. However, this is an optional program and teachers may elect to opt-in or opt-out each school year.
The TIA was created to help recruit, retain, and reward effective educators in the classroom.  Teachers will have the opportunity to earn three designations: recognized, exemplary, and master. Teacher performance and student growth measures will determine which designation a teacher earns. The funding available from the Teacher Incentive Allotment varies by designation. The exact amount of funding per teacher is determined by a formula that takes into account the level of socioeconomic need at a campus and whether the campus is rural.
