A Fiscal Map for Expanded Learning Time (ELT): Second Edition
By lifting the limits off the outdated school calendar to expand the learning day or year, we open up many possibilities for improving student outcomes and achieving educational equity. But to do this, schools and their community partners need adequate and accessible resources. They also need to know where to find them.
This second edition of A Fiscal Map for Expanded Learning Time offers an overview of the funding landscape for expanded learning, pointing to 29 potential sources of federal funding. The new edition also details state and local funding streams in New York City, and adds a scan of funding possibilities for Baltimore and New Orleans, the two cities in addition to New York where ExpandED Schools by TASC are located.
The publication addresses the challenges embedded in many of the funding streams that support expanded learning (among them a patchwork of time-limited grants and contracts) and recommends policy change for scaling and sustaining expanded learning opportunities.
