Early Notification Period Dec. 16-Jan. 22

2013 December 12
by HISD Communications

Are you planning on resigning or retiring from the classroom next year? If so,  you could walk away with up to $5,000 just for letting the district know early. 

On Dec. 12, 2013, the HISD Board of Education approved a program to offer a one-time incentive to full-time teachers and campus administrators in eligible positions who are willing to give the district early notification of their plans to leave the district at the end of the current school year.

HISD has had this program in place since the 2010-2011 school year, and while participation has been significant, the district continues to receive the majority of teacher resignations in May and June.

If you are a teacher who plans to leave HISD at the end of this school year, notify Human Resources of your intent to retire or resign no later than 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2013, and you could be eligible to receive a one-time payment of up to $5,000, depending on your years of service to the district.

There will also be a second opportunity to take receive an incentive for early notification. That window will last from March 10 through April 4, 2014, and all participants would receive $500, regardless of years of service.

Details will be distributed to eligible employees once they become available. Questions may be directed to HR Employees Services at 713-556-7383 or via e-mail to

    NOTE: We received a question at Ask HISD regarding the elibility of nurses, librarians, and other non-instructional staff for this incentive. The feedback we received from HR is that it only applies to teachers and certain campus administrators (e.g. principals, assistant principals, deans). Please contact HR at 713-556-7383 or if you have additional questions or need further clarification. Thanks for your question!
