PowerWalks Hero Schools (October 2015)

No Comments

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.  For the month of October, the PowerWalks Hero School Targets were as follows:

October Hero School Targets High Schools – 180 PowerWalks Observations Middle Schools / Junior High Schools – 150 PowerWalks Observations Elementary / Intermediate / Combined Campuses – 120 PowerWalks Observations Alternative Schools – 60 PowerWalks Observations.

With the Thanksgiving Holiday in November, we will adjust the targets to the following levels:

November Hero School Targets High Schools – 150 PowerWalks Observations Middle Schools / Junior High Schools – 120 PowerWalks Observations Elementary / Intermediate / Combined Campuses – 100 PowerWalks Observations Alternative Schools – 50 PowerWalks Observations.

In October, all of the schools using the PowerWalks Instructional Observation System conducted a total of 13,161 classroom observations. A commendable job, LYS Nation! But now, without further ado, here are your thirty-three PowerWalks Hero Schools for the month of October 2015.  Congratulations!!!
