Teacher bonuses announced

TAMPA — Hillsborough teachers learned this week whether they qualified for a $2,300 performance bonus.

Hillsborough expects to award $10.9-million in performance pay to 4,300 educators under the state's Merit Award Program.

The controversial reward is based heavily on student test scores. Teachers will see the money in their paychecks in late September.
