New Teacher Summit
Newly hired, full time teachers* can earn a maximum of $300 for completing all NTA strands (A, B, C). New teachers are welcome to attend any/all additional sessions, by choice, but are not compensated as a part of NTA. Not completing all trainings within a strand will result in half payment ($50) or no payment. Participants must complete the full training(s) and attendance requirements.
*Teachers must be newly hired in an HISD Full-Time position to be considered eligible for a training stipend. "Teachers" include all full-time employees appraised using TADS. Hourly Lecturers and Associate Teachers are welcome to attend but are not stipend eligible.
Stipend payments will not be awarded until newly hired teachers, nurses and librarians have begun their duty schedule in their assigned job role for the academic year and stipends will be dispersed on or before October 19, 2020. All discrepancies or inquiries regarding New Teacher Academy stipend payments and attendance must be submitted no later than 5 PM on September 18, 2020.
