Last week, the House of Representatives passed their fiscal year 2016 budget. In that budget, they funded the MA Expanded Learning Time Initiative at $14.2M, a cut of about $400,000 from FY15's funding.We are advocating for $15M in funding in FY16 for the ELT Initiative which would maintain funding for the 22 expanded-time schools across the state and allow them to continue to provide students with more time for engaging learning days.
