Time to Grow: Year Two Report on ExpandED Schools

Date Added: 

May 28, 2014

"An analysis of data from the second year of TASC’s national demonstration
of an expanded school day for elementary and middle school students shows
that ExpandED Schools improved school culture, decreased rates of students’
chronic absenteeism and helped students develop positive learning habits and
attitudes. Schools and their community partners made progress in evolving the
culture of their schools to maximize the benefits of expanded time for learning.
For the second year in a row, New York City ExpandED Schools outperformed
schools citywide in rankings by parents, teachers and students of their schools’
safety, communication, engagement and academic expectations."

 

ExpandED Schools Year One Report

In 2011, TASC launched a national demonstration of its ExpandED Schools initiative in elementary and middle schools in New York City, Baltimore and New Orleans. This report presents findings from the second year of this demonstration project, as well as lessons learned by TASC and our partners as schools begin to break from the outdated school calendar.
