Free registration is now open.

Expanding the school day or year is one strategy educators are employing to try to narrow the achievement gap. How schools use that time, experts say, should be tailored to meet the needs of individual schools. At the same time, though, there are proven policies and practices schools need to adopt to reach their goals. Finding that balance is tricky. Some schools have succeeded; others have failed. As more schools move toward expanded learning time using state or federal funding, what kinds of model designs should they choose, what tools are out there to help them, and what should their expectations be? Join us for a webinar that explores what educators should consider when implementing an expanded learning time model.

Guests:

  • Jennifer Davis, Co-Founder & President, National Center for Time and Learning.
  • Emily McCann, president, Citizens Schools.

 

This webinar will be moderated by Nora Fleming, contributing writer, Education Week.
