School Redesign

MA Expanded Learning Time (ELT)

The Expanded Learning Time initiative is a program funded through line item 7061-9412 that enables schools to significantly expand the hours and days in their school schedules to create integrated learning experiences for all students that are responsive to students' needs and the higher expectations set by state and federal laws. The longer school schedules enable each school to improve student achievement, as well as to motivate and engage students by: (1) Providing more instructional time in math, literacy, science and other core subjects to enable students to meet state standards; (2) Integrating enrichment and applied learning opportunities into the school day that complement and align with state standards and 21st century skills; and (3) Scheduling and organizing more time for planning, analysis, lesson design and professional development for teachers including, in some cases, the professionals from their partnering community-based organizations.
