Over the years, we have often heard the concern that a longer school day would not work well for our youngest students because they would be unable to handle the demands of school for so many hours.  Our just-released report goes a long way toward showing that this concern may be misplaced by shedding light on the incredible benefits an expanded school day can have for young children, when designed thoughtfully. A longer school day for the early grades can be the platform upon which a more individualized, more well-rounded, and, in turn, less onerous learning experience takes shape.

Our Newest Publication

Creating Learning Environments in the Early Grades that Support Teacher and Student Success profiles three expanded-time elementary schools to demonstrate how a longer school day provides educators enhanced capacity to meet the needs of young learners and foster a well-rounded education.
