The following is a note that a LYS Superintendent sent to his Principals just two weeks into this new school year. 

Campus Leaders and Colleagues:

Here are the most up-to-date results of PowerWalks, by building, to this point so far:

The Elementary School is leading the way with 177 PowerWalks.
The Middle School is in second with 142 PowerWalks.

High School 1 has 90 PowerWalks.
High School 2 has 65 PowerWalks.
The Alternative High School has 1 PowerWalk.

These are good starting numbers, but remember, frequency matters! We need to be in classrooms and not offices. Office Jockeys will not have the powerful practices in their classrooms at the quality and quantity that our students need and deserve.

As we go forward, know that our Central Office Directors and myself will visit at least 10 classrooms per month, on each campus. Fridays are traditionally are weakest instructional days, so those will be the days that I will be coming through. We will not improve by luck. We will improve through focused cueing, support and coaching.

Have a great weekend and thank you for your hard work and a great start of the school year.

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
