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 – 200 PowerWalks Observations Middle Schools / Junior High Schools – 150 PowerWalks Observations Elementary / Intermediate / Combined Campuses – 125 PowerWalks Observations Alternative Schools – 40 PowerWalks Observations

Because of end of course testing in May, we will adjust the bar a little.

March Hero School Targets High Schools – 190 PowerWalks Observations Middle Schools / Junior High Schools – 130 PowerWalks Observations Elementary / Intermediate / Combined Campuses – 115 PowerWalks Observations Alternative Schools – 30 PowerWalks Observations

In April, all the schools using the PowerWalks Instructional Observation System conducted a total of 15,397 classroom observations. A commendable job, LYS Nation! But now, without further ado, here are your thirty-two PowerWalks Hero Schools for the month of April 2017.  Congratulations!!!
