“We had close to 200 nominations this year, and all of them deserve bragging rights,” Texas School Business Editorial Director Katie Ford says. “We hope the 12 stories we singled out and chose to share will inspire other districts into action. Our mission at Texas School Business is to report on the good things happening in our public schools, and I can tell you with certainty that I’m never short on stories.”
