Teacher Incentive Allotment
NOTE: Ore City ISD's Teacher Incentive Allotment local designation system has received full system approval from the Texas Education Agency. Twenty OCISD teachers -- five at Ore City High School; three at Ore City Middle School, and 12 at Ore City Elementary -- received designations under the TIA allotment system in the spring of 2023.
In June of 2019, the 86th Texas Legislature passed House Bill 3 (HB3), which was signed into law by Governor Abbott establishing the optional Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) program. Two goals of this program are to provide incentive pay to highly effective teachers and to attract and retain effective teachers, especially in rural and high-poverty level schools.
Ore City ISD has submitted the Letter of Intent to participate in the Teacher Incentive Allotment and is in the process of creating our designation system. Parents, teachers, and other community members are invited to participate in the process. If you would like to be a part of creating our program, contact us for more information.
On July 22, 2020, the Texas Education Agency approved the Ore City ISD designation system. The 2020-2021 school year will begin data capture for designation of Recognized, Exemplary, and Master teachers. Please see the OCISD Teacher Growth Initiative for more details about our plan.
