Teacher Incentive Allotment

Frisco Independent School District is Preparing for Implementation of the Teacher Incentive Allotment. The Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) is a key part of House Bill 3, dedicated to recruiting, supporting, and retaining highly effective teachers in all schools, with particular emphasis on high-needs and rural schools. Districts that choose to participate are charged with developing local teacher designation systems that measure teacher effectiveness based, at a minimum, on both teacher observation and student growth data.

Developing a local teacher designation system requires significant planning, robust stakeholder engagement, adequate time to prepare all necessary materials for rollout, and a strong communication plan prior to the first implementation year. Frisco ISD is excited to embark upon this journey with an anticipated full implementation during the 2022-23 school year. This will serve as a great opportunity to honor the great work of our Frisco ISD teaching staff.

The Teacher Incentive Allotment is not a merit-pay approach to compensation, and it will not replace the District’s current pay structure. For those who earn a distinction, it will be an additional state stipend completely separate from the current Frisco ISD pay structure.

Some employees will be automatically designated and eligible for the state stipend. If a teacher is hired in Frisco ISD and was designated in their previous district, the teacher will still receive the state stipend. Additionally, if a teacher is Nationally Board Certified, they will be automatically designated and will receive a state stipend.
