Jennifer Davis Discusses Utica Expanded Learning Time

This morning, NCTL co-founder and president Jennifer Davis discussed the announcement of the Extended Learning Grant in Utica, NY on Utica’s WIBX radio.

Jennifer congratulated Utica for putting together a strong initial plan to receive the grant which has positioned the district for a thoughtful implementation of expanded learning time. Jennifer went on to cite the important impact that ELT has had on many schools across the nation, and how both high-performing and struggling students can benefit from an expanded school schedule.

 “I want to congratulate Utica and the state for really taking on this agenda. It’s a really an important one for our country….These kinds of reforms and resources are exactly what school districts and children need.”
