Unlocking the Power of Expanded Learning Time: Year Two Report on TASC ExpandED Schools

This report on the second year of TASC's 3-year ExpandED Schools (formerly TASC Expanded Learning Time) pilot introduces the Grad Tracker, a tool TASC developed to measure whether elementary and middle school students are on track to graduate on time from high school.

The Grad Tracker helpsgauge students' progress toward graduation by analyzing three categories of New York City Department of Education student and school data. They include grades and test scores, school attendance and incidence of school suspensions.

Highlights of the full report include:

  • Our analysis of student need, which finds that more than two-thirds of students in schools where TASC is working to implement expanded learning time show early warning signs of dropping out
  • A new strategy for benchmarking student results
  • A look at how school-community partner teams are using more learning hours to meet students' needs
  • Early lessons learned
