Moore, Mary T.; Funkhouser, Janie
This report provides information about the use of extended time strategies by local Chapter 1 programs and offers practical guidance for district and school staff who are considering adoption of the strategies. The report focuses on five basic strategies for extending instructional time for Chapter 1 students: (1) extended day kindergarten; (2) home-based instruction; (3) before- and after-school instructional activities; (4) Saturday sessions; and (5) summer or extended school year programs. Findings are drawn from research regarding the effectiveness of increased instructional time and Chapter 1 extended time strategies in raising student achievement, and case studies of twelve Chapter 1 extended time projects that represent the basic strategies addressed in this report. An executive summary is provided, followed by an introduction (Chapter 1), which focuses on the report's purpose, the case for extended time strategies, sources of information, and methodology. Chapter 2 summarizes evidence on the value of increased instructional time for students. Chapter 3 describes the design and operation of extended-time Chapter 1 programs in selected districts. Chapter 4 discusses conclusions and implications. Profiles of 11 extended time projects and relevant documentation are provided in appendices. (RH)
