Amarillo ISD is launching its Profile of a Graduate initiative, a collaboration between district leadership and the community aimed at developing graduates who are ready for the rapidly changing 21st century and the local workforce, with the first in a series of community advisory group meetings on Tuesday, May 3, from 12:30 – 4 p.m. at the Region 16 Education Service Center, 5800 Bell. 
With just one week until worlds, another team unexpectedly dropped out of the FIRST Championships, scheduled for April 27-30 in St. Louis. Next in line for a spot to compete, the Armadillos were invited to take their place. As the initial excitement of staff and students quelled, the reality of what would be demanded of the school district in order for the team to compete at the world event set in. 
Three AISD students and Dyron Howell, founder of Amarillo’s Snack Pak 4 Kids, presented information to the Board about the Snack Shak program, a community effort that provides free weekend meals for middle and high school students and their families. The Board also heard a presentation regarding Lab Classrooms, an initiative that is being piloted at several AISD schools.  
Six extraordinary educators will represent their 2,300 some odd counterparts as district finalists for the Amarillo ISD Teacher of the Year program next month. These educators epitomize the hard working staff throughout Amarillo ISD – focusing their time and attention on meeting the needs of a varied student population.
