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

In May, all the schools using the PowerWalks Instructional Observation System conducted a total of 5,030 observations. A commendable job, LYS Nation! But now, without further ado, here are your eight PowerWalks Hero Schools for the month of May 2017.  Congratulations!!!
