Teachers and administrators at 12 schools in the Prince George’s County, Md., school district could receive bonuses under a performance-pay pilot program unveiled last week.

Funding for the program, which will begin in the next school year, will come from a $17 million grant that the 134,000-student district received from the federal Teacher Incentive Fund.

Two committees, one of teachers and another of school- and district-level administrators and union officials, will work out the guidelines for the program.

Teachers could earn up to $10,000 in bonuses each year, while principals and assistant principals could earn up to $12,500.
