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.  Since this is the beginning of the school year, any campus that conducted even a single PowerWalks observation is to be considered a Hero Campus.  Next month, as you can see below, the bar will be raised a little bit higher.

Your September Targets High Schools – 150 PowerWalks Observations Middle Schools / Junior High Schools – 125 PowerWalks Observations Elementary / Intermediate / Combined Campuses – 100 PowerWalks Observations Alternative Schools – 50 PowerWalks Observations

Now without further ado, here are your forty PowerWalks Hero Schools for the month of August 2015.  Congratulations!!!
