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 April the PowerWalks Hero School Targets were as follows:

April Hero School 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

This month with state testing and end of the year activities, we’ll modify the Hero Targets to the following:

May Hero School Targets High Schools – 130 PowerWalks Observations Middle Schools / Junior High Schools – 115 PowerWalks Observations Elementary / Intermediate / Combined Campuses – 90 PowerWalks Observations Alternative Schools – 40 PowerWalks Observations

In April, all of the schools using the PowerWalks Instructional Observation System conducted a total of 9,116 classroom observations. A commendable job, LYS Nation! But now, without further ado, here are your thirty PowerWalks Hero Schools for the month of April 2016.  Congratulations!!!
