Allotments

Available Funding

The funding available from the Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) varies by designation and campus where the designated teacher works. The exact amount of allotment funding per teacher is determined by a formula that considers the level of socioeconomic need at a campus and whether the campus is rural.
Recognized – $3,000–$9,000 0%
Exemplary – $6,000–$18,000 0%
Master – $12,000–$32,000 0%

How the Allotment Is Calculated

Teacher designations each have a base allotment amount and a multiplier rate based on each specific designation level: Recognized, Exemplary, or Master.

Designation, base and multiplier chart

Each student at the designated teacher’s campus is assigned a tier determined by the census block of the student’s home address. Each tier carries a point value. Those point values are 0, .5, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0 (from least to most severe economic disadvantage). These tiers are the same tiers used for Compensatory Education. As the Tier designation increases, so does the need.

Student Tier Assignment Chart

Students at rural schools are assigned to a tier that is two tiers higher than their assigned Compensatory Education tier, which increases the point value accordingly. (For example, rather than X0, they will be assigned X1.0. Note the highest tier possible is tier 5.)

Based on the tier levels and corresponding point values for each student, the campus is assigned an average student point value, which is used in the allotment formula calculation.

Based on the tier levels and corresponding point values for each student, the campus is assigned an average student point value, which is used in the allotment formula calculation.

The average point value is then multiplied by the designation’s multiplier rate. That value is then added to the designation’s base allotment, giving you the total incentive allotment.

ALLOTMENT = Base + (Multiplier x Average Student Point Value)

Possible Funding Amounts at a Glance

District allotment amounts for each designation level change across different socioeconomic tiers for teachers working at rural and non-rural campuses. As the Tier designation increases, there is more need for funding. The maximum allotment funding amount is $32,000 and the highest student tier level is 5.

Districts receive the TIA allotment funding and must abide by the following spending requirement.

90%

Districts are required to spend at least 90% of their allotment funds on teacher compensation on the campus where the designated teacher works.

10%

Districts may set aside up to 10% for costs associated with implementing a local designation system or supporting teachers in getting designated.
