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 6,351 PowerWalks conducted during the past month and the March targets for Hero School designation were:

Big Schools – 220 PowerWalks Observations Medium Sized Schools – 160 PowerWalks Observations Small Schools – 90 PowerWalks Observations Very Small Schools – 50 PowerWalks Observations

Due to Spring Break, the Easter Holiday, and the beginning of state testing for many schools we will leave the April targets the same:

Your April Hero School Targets Big Schools – 220 PowerWalks Observations Medium Sized Schools – 160 PowerWalks Observations Small Schools – 90 PowerWalks Observations Very Small Schools – 50 PowerWalks Observations

Now without further ado, here are your twenty-four PowerWalks Hero Schools for the month of March 2014.  Congratulations!!!
