Big Spring ISD Teacher Incentive Allotment
House Bill 3 (HB 3), passed by the 86th Texas Legislature in June of 2019, established an optional Teacher Incentive Allotment with a stated goal of a six-figure salary for teachers who prioritize teaching in high needs areas and rural district campuses.
Big Spring ISD is excited to announce that the BSISD Teacher Incentive Allotment was fully approved by the Texas Education Agency in 2023! The initial three-year process included planning and input in year one, data collection in year two, and data submission and validation in year three. In our first approval year, the district designated 25 teachers! The district is committed to the continuation of compensating instructional excellence through the collection of data centered around student growth and teacher observations.
Currently, Big Spring ISD has prioritized the following teacher groups for participation in the Teacher Incentive Allotment:
- K-8 Reading and Math, English 1, English 2, Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2
- 5th/8th Science and Biology
