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 state-wide testing and typical end of the school year events, for the month of May the cutoff numbers were as follows:

Big Schools – 150 PowerWalks Observations Medium Sized Schools – 100 PowerWalks Observations Small Schools – 75 PowerWalks Observations Very Small Schools – 40 PowerWalks Observations.

So without further adieu, here are your thirteen PowerWalks Hero Schools for the Month of May.  Congratulations!!!
