How does a teacher earn a designation?
Texas Education Agency (TEA) will have final approval, and it is possible that not all teachers submitted for designation by the district will be approved by TEA.

Measures/ratings may be adjusted each year by the district and teachers not obtaining a designation one year may be submitted in subs
What is the financial impact of the TIA per teacher?
How will the allotments be paid?
It is possible for part of the campus funds to be used toward compensating other non-designated, highly effective teachers on that campus that contribute to student and campus growth (with a majority of the allotment paid to the designated teacher and a smaller portion divided amongst other highly effective teachers on the campus who are not yet eligible for designation). These amounts may be adjusted each year as additional teacher groups become eligible for designation.
What is the TIA Timeline?
ALL teachers in an eligible TIA eligible course are AUTOMATICALLY considered! No action is required from the teacher!
At the conclusion of the 2022-2023 Aransas County’s teacher appraisal and student growth outcomes are reviewed alongside the state’s performance standards as well as available state and national data to determine the district’s final TIA cut points. Once analysis is complete, information is made publicly available.
If performance criteria is met, TIA designation is submitted to the State for data review; pending TEA data validation, TIA designation is attached to teacher’s teaching certificate for a period of 5 years.
