Two school districts in the Panhandle are getting special recognition for achievement in the classroom.    

Amarillo ISD's San Jacinto Elementary and South Lawn Elementary are being noticed for distinguished progress, as well as Hartley ISD. 

The Texas Education Agency says these schools have done well in math, science, and reading. Students from these campuses continue to close performance gaps in these subjects and more. 

The organization says the purpose of the distinction is to encourage schools to achieve and maintain high standards. 

Last month, they released the 2016 state accountability ratings for more than 1,200 school districts and charters, as well as more than 8,600 campuses statewide. The ratings revealed that approximately 94 percent of school districts and charters across Texas have achieved the rating of Met Standard.
