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. For the month of January the cutoff numbers were as follows: Big Schools – 350 PowerWalks Observations Medium Sized Schools – 250 PowerWalks Observations Small Schools – 160 PowerWalks Observations Very Small Schools – 80 PowerWalks Observations. So without further adieu, here are your twenty-five PowerWalks Hero Schools for the Month of January. Congratulations!!! (2) = Two Months in a Row (3) = 3 Months in a Row (4) = 4 Months in a Row
