HISD is rewarding hard-working teachers with $23 million in bonuses.More than 12,000 teachers and instructional staff members will get an average bonus pay of about $2,000. The largest bonus check will be about $7,800. The money comes from HISD's new school improvement strategy, geared towards programs that push for higher student achievement.

Administrators say this year's bonus pay is far greater than last year's $15 million awarded to teachers.
