Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA)

401 FM 719

Kenedy, Texas 78119




Distribution of Compensation

Statute requires that 90% of Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) funds be distributed directly to teachers, who earn a designation, at their assigned campus.

The District shall retain 10% of the TIA dollars to use to support district oversight of the implementation of TIA and ongoing development of TIA resources. The district plans to use the 10% allocation on supplemental educational materials that will support student growth in the classrooms, and on professional development that will focus on instructional practices, classroom management, and/or professionalism to benefit teachers throughout the district.

The same compensation plan will be used for designated teachers entering Kenedy ISD with a designation and distributed as described according to their campus assignment.

Frequency of Compensation

 TIA compensation is an annual allotment provided by the State and subject to availability of state funding allocations.

  • TIA designated teachers will receive TIA compensation annually based on their TIA designation and TIA state funding for their campus of assignment at the time TIA funds are disbursed.

  • Compensation will be distributed, in one lump sum, on the June paycheck, provided all information is received per TEA’s published timelines.

TRS Retirement Impact of Compensation

TIA compensation amounts will be included in the annual wages reported to the Teacher Retirement System (TRS) and will be used when calculating retirement benefits.

Deduction Information

TIA compensation amounts received will include typical reductions from the allotment received to cover the cost of TRS, on-behalf payments, Medicare, Workers Compensation, and any other pertinent deductions.

Teachers Leaving Kenedy ISD
