The TIME (Time for Innovation Matters in Education) Collaborative is a partnership between the Ford Foundation and the National Center on Time & Learning (NCTL) to develop high-quality and sustainable expanded learning time schools in five states. Through the TIME Collaborative, the Ford Foundation and NCTL are investing in and supporting these states because of their shared commitment to closing academic achievement gaps and to prioritizing the use of newly flexible federal funds—afforded by the ESEA waiver process—to add at least 300 hours of more learning time for all students in participating schools.
