Students at 16 area schools will be allowed to switch campuses because their schools are among the lowest rated in Texas.
Four Amarillo schools made the Texas Education Agency's list for schools kids can leave behind because of previous poor performance.
Those local schools are Lee Elementary, Palo Duro High, Tascosa High and Horace Mann Middle School.
But one AISD official calls the assessment outdated.
"it's just a reflection of an area of difficulty that they've had in the past which has long since been corrected," says Janie Cooper, a director at Palo Duro High.
And, Shane Howard, a parent we spoke with has children in two of those four amarillo schools, and so far he plans to have them stay put.
"it makes you worry a little bit.. But we're pretty happy with them right now."
Below is a list of 16 area schools earmarked for transfers next year:
Horace Mann Middle
Palo Duro High School
Tascosa High School
Bovina Elementary School
