School Redesign

MA Expanded Learning Time (ELT) Districts and Schools

As of FY15, 22 schools in 11 districts participate in the MA ELT initiative, adding 300 hours to their school schedules. Each school has strategically redesigned, and continuously refines its schedule with the goal of accelerating student achievement by leveraging the additional time for core academics and targeted intervention, as well as providing time for teacher collaboration and professional development. With the inclusion of engaging, project-based enrichment opportunities for students, MA ELT schools endeavor to close the opportunity gap for students in high poverty districts in addition to enhancing their academic experience.
