The Master Teacher Initiative is an SAISD initiative to develop, support, recognize, retain, and reward excellent teaching. It includes multiple measures of effective teaching that reflect the district’s values for teacher development and performance to accelerate student achievement. Teachers can earn as much as $100,000 a year or more.
SAISD is committed to providing multiple avenues and ongoing support for professional growth for our instructional staff. Tuition-free leadership programs provide the training, coaching, framework, and real-world experience individuals need to build capacity for instructional leadership as a teacher leader or as a school administrator.
