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. Due to Spring Break and statewide testing, for the month of March the cutoff numbers were as follows:

  • Big Schools – 300 PowerWalks Observations
  • Medium Sized Schools – 200 PowerWalks Observations
  • Small Schools – 125 PowerWalks Observations
  • Very Small Schools – 60 PowerWalks Observations

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