Time for a New Day: Broadening Opportunities for Massachusetts Schoolchildren. Expanded Learning Time Initiative 2006-2007 Annual Report
Massachusetts 2020
Our children deserve an education that fully prepares them for the future--success in college, the workforce and a healthy, fulfilled life. The Expanded Learning Time (ELT) Initiative in Massachusetts is redesigning schools to offer children new learning and enrichment opportunities made possible because of an expanded school schedule. With state resources, participating schools are expanding the school day by at least 300 hours per year to improve student outcomes in core academic subjects, broaden enrichment opportunities and improve instruction by adding more planning and professional development time for teachers. The vision of the Expanded Learning Time Initiative is to reshape the American school calendar to provide all students with a well-rounded education that prepares them for full engagement and participation in the economic and civic life of our 21st century global society. This paper presents the annual report of the Massachusetts ELT Initiative for 2006-2007.
