Continuing with our theme of talking with the winners of the Greenhouse Awards, I wanted to highlight the Amarillo Independent School District.

Last year, the awards were open to just Higher Ed, but as you can see, K-12 districts can also show tremendous strength when it comes to building a community of practice.
