A retired Amarillo ISD teacher who has devoted countless hours since her retirement to volunteering in AISD schools, is one of this year’s Heroes for Texas Children. The award is bestowed upon individuals by the State Board of Education (SBOE) to recognize outstanding public school volunteers. 
Two Amarillo ISD educators have been named finalists for the nation’s highest recognition of mathematics and science teachers, the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). 
Amarillo ISD will now notify the parents of students in an affected grade level when a classmate has head lice. A new Texas law, Senate Bill 1566, requires schools to notify parents within five days when an occurrence of head lice is discovered. In compliance with federal law regarding confidentiality of student medical information, this notice will not identify the child with head lice. 
Amarillo ISD students will begin a new year ranked in one of the top 10 school districts in the nation for high achievement according to a national comparative index. The Education Equality Index (EEI) looked at data from 55,000 schools in 45 states to determine rankings.  
Seen and Heard at the August 2017 School Board Meeting
At the August School Board meeting, the Board heard a presentation from Amarillo Area Foundation president Clay Stribling about proposed plans to expand the ACE program.  
Amarillo ISD Trustees called a $100 million school bond election to be held November 7. Over the past four months, the Board has reviewed an extensive study of each of AISD’s 55 campuses. The district’s aging facilities have been a focus because nearly 80 percent of schools are more than 50 years old.
