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. Our team is trained to provide practice-based professional development and coaching to campuses on Texas Instructional Leadership (TIL) in the areas of action coaching, data driven instruction, change management, communication, and student growth. The processes we have learned and implemented through TIL are valid and reliable. We also have team members who have worked to support districts with their human resources departments to support human capital and compensation.
