The Teacher Incentive Allotment program allows eligible classroom teachers with a National Board certificate to earn a recognized designation and generate allotment funds for their school district ranging from $3,000 to $9,000 based on the district’s location and level of socio-economic need.
To ensure they are eligible for the designation, National Board-certified teachers must update their directory information to show their employment in a Texas public school by Jan. 31.
Designations for newly certified National Board teachers will be awarded in April 2022 and will be retroactive to the beginning of the 2021-22 school year. The teacher’s designation will expire at the end of the school year following the expiration of their National Board certificate. For example, if the certificate expires on Nov. 30, 2021, the recognized designation will remain active until July 31, 2022.
School districts and charter schools may also request reimbursement of eligible fees paid to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards for teachers who certified or renewed in 2019 or later. The annual application window runs from Jan. 3 to March 31.
