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 February the PowerWalks Hero School Targets were as follows:

February Hero School Targets High Schools – 135 PowerWalks Observations Middle Schools / Junior High Schools – 105 PowerWalks Observations Elementary / Intermediate / Combined Campuses – 90 PowerWalks Observations Alternative Schools – 45 PowerWalks Observations

This month, due to the fact that the LYS Nation is taking part in the March For A Cure PowerWalks Challenge, the more PowerWalks you do the bigger the donation to the American Cancer Society! So let’s break a sweat!!

March For A Cure – Cancer Fightin’ Hero School Targets High Schools – 325 PowerWalks Observations Middle Schools / Junior High Schools – 275 PowerWalks Observations Elementary / Intermediate / Combined Campuses – 225 PowerWalks Observations Alternative Schools – 100 PowerWalks Observations

In February, all of the schools using the PowerWalks Instructional Observation System conducted a total of 16,382 classroom observations. A commendable job, LYS Nation! But now, without further ado, here are your FORTY-NINE PowerWalks Hero Schools for the month of February 2016.  Congratulations!!!
