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. In May, the Hero Schools met or exceeded the targets below:

The May Hero School Targets Big Schools – 200 PowerWalks Observations Medium Sized Schools – 130 PowerWalks Observations Small Schools – 65 PowerWalks Observations Very Small Schools – 30 PowerWalks Observations.

For the record, the schools in the LYS nation conducted a total of 2,447 PowerWalks observations this past month.  But enough stalling, here are your nine PowerWalks Hero Schools for the month of May 2015.  Congratulations!!!
