In June of 2019, the 86th Texas Legislature passed House Bill 3 (HB3), which was signed into law by Governor Abbott, establishing the optional Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) program. Two goals of this program are to provide incentive pay to highly effective teachers and to attract and retain effective teachers, especially in rural and high-poverty level schools.
On July 22, 2020, the Texas Education Agency approved the Livingston ISD designation system. The 2020-2021 school year began a data capture for the designation of Recognized, Exemplary, and Master teachers.
