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 May the PowerWalks Hero School Targets were as follows:

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 May all of the schools using the PowerWalks Instructional Observation System conducted a total of 3,524 classroom observations. A commendable job, LYS Nation! Now, without further ado, here are your final twelve PowerWalks Hero Schools for the 2015/2016 school year.  Congratulations!!!
