Designated teachers in the Canutillo Independent School District will soon see a salary increase as a reward for being amongst the state’s highest performing teachers through the Texas Education Agency's (TEA) Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA).

The TIA program was created in 2019 as part of Texas education House Bill 3 (HB3) to provide highly competitive salaries for teachers who prioritize teaching in high needs areas and rural district campuses. The program aims to recruit, support, and retain highly effective teachers in all schools.

“This is great news for our District to be able to reward our top performing teachers with a monetary award for going above and beyond their duties in the classroom to provide the best opportunities for our students,” said Superintendent Dr. Pedro Galaviz. “We currently have 11 National Board Certified Teachers and over 20 currently on the path to completion in our District. Our teachers are always striving to be the best they can be for our kids and deserve this recognition.”

Recipients of the allotment are selected based on either performance as measured by student growth outcomes during the 2021- 2022 school year or attainment of National Board Certification.

Selected Canutillo ISD teachers are designated as either master, exemplary or recognized teachers for five years. The District will receive additional funding between $3,000 - $32,000 per year for every designated teacher in the District. Their designation is reflected on teacher certification records and eligible teachers will receive additional compensation for each year of designation that they remain at the District.

Awardees for 2022- 2023 will be notified later this month and will receive official details from TEA regarding designation status and the anticipated allotment in May.
