The TISA Budget Proposal allocates $125M annually to increase public school teachers’ salaries in FY23, which will be included in the TISA base funding. Also, there is a provision in the legislation that the Tennessee General Assembly (TNGA) can direct a portion of the annual base funding increases for salary increases for existing educators, which may positively impact retention. Additionally, the legislation directs the Tennessee State Board of Education (TNSBE) to increase the state salary schedule if such a legislative direction is made, which could positively impact hiring.
