Teacher Incentive Allotment

teacher incentive allotment

House Bill 3 established the Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) to recognize effective teachers on three different levels: Recognized, Exemplary, and Master. These teacher designations generate additional teacher-focused allotment funding for districts in order for them to reward their top performers" (

Joshua ISD’s vision is to be a highly acclaimed model of educational excellence. JISD recognizes we have outstanding teachers in our district and desire to implement TIA to support and reward highly effective teachers.

TIA aligns with JISD’s District Improvement Plan by supporting the efficient management of resources to promote student success, meeting or exceeding a score of 90% in accountability in Domain 2: Student Progress, and 95% or greater teacher retention rate. Implementing TIA will allow us to remain competitive with other districts in recruitment and retainment of teachers.

Joshua ISD is part of Cohort E. Joshua ISD provided multiple presentations throughout the 20-21 and 21-22 school years, and used stakeholder feedback from the presentations to develop the district TIA plan.

Our initial TIA plan included PK-12th grade reading and math teachers at all the campuses as eligible to earn a designation. The 2022-2023 school year was their first data capture year. Based on data collected throughout the district, eligible teachers who met the criteria will be put up for a designation during the data validation process through Texas Tech University on October 19, 2023. The district will receive final approval and notification of our designated teachers in the spring of 2024.

The initial allotment will be paid to the designated teachers as a stipend in the summer of 2024. Teachers will hold their designation title for 5 years.

In April 2023, Joshua ISD submitted an Expansion/Modification application as a follow up to our initial application. The approval we received of this application adds 3rd-12th grade science, 6th-12th grade social studies, and high school CTE teachers as eligible to earn a designation. The 2023-2024 school year will be their first data capture year.
