KATY [January 10, 2019] – Katy Independent School District’s Amy Campbell Elementary will be formally dedicated to a living legacy. After devoting 33 years of her life to special education, retired educator Amy Campbell continues doing what she loves best…helping children. Several days out of the week you will find her at the school which now displays her name on the marquee. Ms. Campbell is known for her contagious smile as well as her immeasurable devotion to student education. She is best known for piloting the LIFE skills (Living in Functional Environments) program for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities which started in 1987. At the same time, she and a fellow teacher began the Occupational Lab, a place where students completed jobs for local businesses. As if that wasn’t enough, she even obtained her school bus driver’s license in order to personally take students into the community to learn hands-on job skills. Today this program continues in every Katy ISD high school and is called the Work Based Learning Program.
Campbell Elementary School opened on August 15, 2018 and located in the Cross Creek Ranch subdivision.
