WEST TEXAS - West Texas teachers could also be pocketing some extra cash soon.

The State will receive two billion in federal stimulus money.

The cash will be given to school districts and most of it will be used for a state mandated $800.00 bonus for teachers and other educators.

Some districts decided not to budget for the extra money, because they feared it wouldn't get approved.
