Expanded learning time
Rethinking school schedules and the ways schools use time is vital to helping students learn and giving teachers every opportunity to provide the best education possible. When labor and management are working together, the community school strategy gives schools the perfect opportunity to reinvent their own schedules to best suit the needs of their teachers, students, and community. Staggered teaching times, extended school days, and redesigned class schedules can recover lost hours for students and teachers alike, while leaving the school open for public activities provides the community with a safe space to meet, learn and grow.
