In recent years policymakers have increasingly looked to Extended Learning Time (ELT) as a means of improving student outcomes. As a result, some school districts have increased academic time for students by adding time to the school day or days to the school year. In other communities, schools and community-based organizations have partnered to offer aligned and integrated school-day and afterschool and summer programs. The following selected list of resources includes summaries of the research supporting Extended Learning Time, and resources describing recommendations related to policy initiatives and resource allocation. The resources are organized in the following sections: (1) Resources on Extended Learning Time and Extended Day Initiatives; and (2) Afterschool and Expanded Learning Opportunities.
