TIA Cohort E

Honoring Teacher Excellence OCTOBER 5, 2022

What's the TIA ID?

The TEA ID is also called the TEA Test ID, and is tied to educator certification accounts in TEAL. This serves as both another point to confirm each teacher’s identify, and is also used to place designations on certificates for those who earn a designation.

Districts will upload a text file with teacher SSNs and it will come back with the TEA ID and certificate info, which they can disregard. Most certification officers/HR are familiar with this report. Note that not all teachers will have a TEA ID, usually CTE, charter school employees or other DoI teachers who are uncertified.
