Teacher Incentive Allotment

TIA logo

RISD recognized more than 20 highly effective teachers with monetary stipends as part of the state’s effort to reward and retain skilled educators.

Teachers also receive a designation through the Teacher Incentive Allotment that is added to their state board of education certification for five years. The purpose of the TIA is to prioritize teaching in high-needs areas and reward high-performing teachers.
