NCTL along with The Center for American Progress believe that meeting the demands associated with the Common Core will be a challenge, but high-quality expanded learning time is one of the most far-reaching implementation strategies and can enable students to successfully meet these higher expectations. The report, Redesigning and Expanding School Time to Support Common Core Implementation, looks at how high-performing expanded-time schools give teachers more time for ongoing professional development and collaboration needed to implement the Common Core standards.
On January 31, 2014, NCTL and the Center for American Progress co-hosted a release event for the report that can be watched online here. You can access a PDF of the report here.
