In furtherance of a LYS Nation tradition, we will take this time to tip our caps to the campuses that have embraced 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.  There were a total of 8,111 PowerWalks conducted during the past month and the December targets for Hero School designation were:

Big Schools – 250 PowerWalks Observations Medium Sized Schools – 175 PowerWalks Observations Small Schools – 105 PowerWalks Observations Very Small Schools – 55 PowerWalks Observations

For the month of January, due to the holidays and the start of a new semester, we’ll adjust the targets to:

Big Schools – 265 PowerWalks Observations Medium Sized Schools – 190 PowerWalks Observations Small Schools – 115 PowerWalks Observations Very Small Schools – 60 PowerWalks Observations

Now without further adieu, here are your twenty-two PowerWalks Hero Schools for the month of December 2012.  Congratulations!!!
