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 2,323 PowerWalks conducted during the past month and the May targets for Hero School designation were:

Big Schools – 175 PowerWalks Observations Medium Sized Schools – 120 PowerWalks Observations Small Schools – 75 PowerWalks Observations Very Small Schools – 40 PowerWalks Observations

Now without further ado, here are your thirteen PowerWalks Hero Schools for the month of May 2014.  Congratulations!!!
