Expanded Learning Time Program Expands Its Reach

Twenty-one schools across the country are adding another 300 hours to their academic year as part of an expanded-learning initiative to help close the opportunity gap. They’ll join 20 other high-poverty, low-performing schools that have already lengthened their academic year through an initiative called Time for Innovation Matters in Education, or the TIME Collaborative, that Education Week first wrote about when it was launched in 2012.
