Two Amarillo Schools Achieve Blue Ribbon Status

Two Amarillo schools are nationally recognized by earning Blue Ribbon awards.

Bivins Elementary and Landergin Elementary are among 26 Texas schools to receive the award this year.

The Amarillo Independent School District says both schools were nominated because of their high academic performance. Both Bivins and Landergin have their test results in the top ten percent, with at least 40 percent of the students being disadvantaged.

Both schools will be honored at a ceremony in Washington D.C. in October.
