Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA)
The Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) allows districts to incentivize teacher pay in order to compensate high performing teachers and encourage placement on rural or high-needs campuses. To be eligible for these funds, districts must develop a local designation system to use to designate high-performing teachers as Recognized, Exemplary or Master. ESC Region 12 has qualified and experienced specialists who can support districts as they build their local designation system.

Individual Graduation Committees (IGC)
Senate Bill 149 has revised the state’s assessment graduation requirements for students enrolled in the 11th or 12th grade for the 2014-2015, 2015-2016, or 2016-2017 school years. A student who has failed the EOC assessment graduation requirements for no more than two courses may receive a Texas high school diploma if the student has qualified to graduate by means of an individual graduation committee (IGC) determination. This provision was extended by SB 463 in 2017 to last until September 1, 2019.
A-F Accountability Resources
The 85th Legislature passed HB 22, changing the Texas school accountability system so that every campus and district receives ratings from A-F through a Domain system. The law requires schools and districts to be issued grades based on three different areas of performance or “domains,” and those three grades must be combined into a single overall rating. To support a full understanding of the A-F system.
Texas Virtual School Network
Education Service Center Region 12, in partnership with the Texas Education Agency, serves as the Regional Liaison for the Texas Virtual School Network (TXVSN) and provides assistance and support to Region 12 districts interested in participating in this statewide network.
The Legal Framework is a statewide leadership project partnering the Texas Education Agency and Region 18 Education Service Center.
