Teacher Incentive Allotment

Region 7 ESC supports Region 7 districts and charters with implementation of teacher incentive programs. 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.

SLOs are long-term goals for student learning crafted by teachers and administrators. Often working in teams with peer, school, and district support, teachers develop these goals to help define what success looks like for their students and plan backward to ensure that instruction is purposefully guiding schools, teachers, and students toward a common vision of success.

The SLO process strives to bring together the varied pedagogical considerations a teacher juggles throughout the year – curriculum, instruction, assessment, adjustment, and evaluation. The SLO process encourages and prompts continual reflection and self-assessment so teachers can focus on aligning curriculum, instruction, and student performance.
