Princeton ISD TIA Designation Plan
House Bill (HB) 3 established district local optional teacher designation systems and the Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) that are dedicated to recruiting, rewarding, and retaining highly effective teachers in all schools, with particular emphasis on high-needs and rural schools.
Teacher performance and student outcomes are of the upmost importance to Princeton ISD. Participation in the Teacher Incentive Allotment Program (TIA) places our district in the optimal position to attract and recruit highly motivated, effective teachers. Most importantly, it allows us the ability to identify and retain our current most effective teachers and provide incentives for them to teach at our most challenged campuses. A compensation program allows us to reward teachers for results, based on their effectiveness levels, beyond our current uniform salary scale that compensates everyone based on college degrees and years of service alone. It is our goal that our participation in TIA will have a positive impact on teacher motivation and performance and overall student achievement.
In accordance with House Bill 3 (HB 3), Princeton ISD has participates in Cohort D of the Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) program through the Texas Education Agency in partnership with Texas Tech University.
