2010-2011 Update on the MA Expanded Learning Time Initiative

Massachusetts 2020 recently released the 2010-2011 Update on the Massachusetts Expanded Learning Time (ELT) Initiative. Schools with four years of expanded time are demonstrating impressive increases in their proficiency rates across all grades and all tested subjects, including over 8 point gains in ELA and nearly 20 points gains in Math. As the ELT Initiative Update illustrates, ELT Schools are proving that, when combined with quality teaching and a commitment to student achievement, expanded learning time can be a powerful lever for change.
