Fort Worth ISD is excited to offer our teachers a realistic pathway to earning substantially more money for their best work. It’s the Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA), passed by – and funded by – the Texas Legislature as part of House Bill 3. FWISD is making sure our teachers have the opportunity to reap the benefits of the money made available by the state.
“We are truly excited to share details of this plan which will result in monetary recognition for teachers who are making an impact on student achievement,” said Superintendent Kent P. Scribner. “It is long overdue that we reward excellence in the profession of education. This will be a phased-in process but the importance of this beginning step cannot be overstated.”
As seen in this short introductory video, the TIA will help Fort Worth ISD and other school systems in Texas recruit, retain and reward highly effective teachers. Teachers will have the opportunity to be awarded on one of three levels: Recognized, Exemplary, and Master. Depending on the designation earned, teachers can increase their yearly compensation from $3,000 to $32,000.
Fort Worth ISD is in the early stages of the implementation process. After watching the video, visit www.fwisd.org/tia for more information on this unprecedented opportunity.
