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 December, the PowerWalks Hero School Targets were as follows:

December Hero School Targets High Schools – 120 PowerWalks Observations Middle Schools / Junior High Schools – 90 PowerWalks Observations Elementary / Intermediate / Combined Campuses – 80 PowerWalks Observations Alternative Schools – 40 PowerWalks Observations

With the availability of more school days in January, we will adjust the targets to the following levels:

January 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 December, all of the schools using the PowerWalks Instructional Observation System conducted a total of 7,796 classroom observations. A commendable job, LYS Nation! But now, without further ado, here are your thirty PowerWalks Hero Schools for the month of December 2015.  Congratulations!!!
