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 February the cutoff numbers were as follows:

  • Big Schools – 325 PowerWalks Observations
  • Medium Sized Schools – 225 PowerWalks Observations
  • Small Schools – 150 PowerWalks Observations
  • Very Small Schools – 75 PowerWalks Observations.

So without further adieu, here are your thirty PowerWalks Hero Schools for the Month of February. Congratulations!!! (#) = Number of Months in a Row
