Budgets, staffing, and negotiated agreements don’t have to place strict limits on the length of the school day. In this third session of our webinar series on expanded learning time, Ben Lummis, Vice President for the National Center on Time & Learning (NCTL) and Sarah Gallagher, Program Associate at NCTL will share a framework for flexibly thinking about resources to maximize the length of your school day. They will discuss strategies which have allowed expanded time schools to stretch their resources and gain additional learning time for students while staying within their budgets and abiding by their contracts. Some strategies that will be explored are:
  • leveraging partnerships

  • use of technology

  • adjusting staff schedules
The other webinars in this series are listed below and on a flyer for this series. During our SchoolsMovingUp interactive webinars, participants have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the information being presented both with the presenters and with each other via the text chat.

This webinar series is hosted by SchoolsMovingUp in partnership with the National Center for Time and Learning.
