As is now a LYS Nation tradition, we will take time to tip our caps to the campuses that are taking the most important step in creating and maintaining an action oriented professional learning community. These are the campuses that have conducted an extraordinary number of formative classroom observations in a given month. This month the cutoff numbers are as follows:

  • Big Schools – 400 PowerWalks Observations
  • Medium Sized Schools – 250 PowerWalks Observations
  • Small Schools – 125 PowerWalks Observations
  • Very Small Schools – 75 PowerWalks Observations.

So without further adieu, here are your thirty-eight PowerWalks Hero Schools for the Month of November. Congratulations!!! * = Two Months in a Row
