We wanted to share some exciting news about the Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) in Bryan ISD!
Bryan ISD recently learned the data we submitted from the 2021-2022 school year passed the data test with Texas Tech University! This means we have passed a critical milestone in developing our district’s local designation system.
Now that the overall system and data have been approved, the teachers that Bryan ISD put forward for a designation recommendation will be individually reviewed by TEA, and final determinations will be made no later than late April. Essentially, this means we WILL have teachers who will receive a lump sum payout from the TIA system in June!
Our goal is to continue recruiting, retaining, rewarding, and GROWING top teachers in all areas. We also have our first cohort of National Board Certification Teachers completing their certification process. These teachers will automatically receive a Recognized designation under the TIA system.
While the Texas Education Agency is still verifying individual designations, we know we will have teachers receive life-changing payouts in June. These payouts will range from $3,000-$25,000 depending on the teacher’s designation level and the campus where they serve.
In total, Bryan ISD recommended approximately 180 teachers for one of the three designation levels (Recognized, Exemplary, or Master). Each of these teachers made substantial growth with their students and also performed at the highest level on the Texas Teacher Evaluation & Support System.
We would like to thank the entire Bryan ISD team, as well as the district TIA committee, for all of their hard work over the past two years to get to this moment! We will release more information as it becomes available. For more info on the TIA program click here.
