FY 2015 MA ELT Budget Update
In his FY 2015 budget, Governor Deval Patrick increased funding for the MA Expanded Learning Time (ELT) Initiative by $4 million to nearly $18.2 million. Governor Patrick's budget would allow additional schools to work with their teachers and school communities to plan for and implement an innovative, redesigned school day. The Governor's budget is the first step in the annual budget process. The Legislature is now considering its budget recommendations for the next fiscal year, and we look forward to working with leaders in both the House of Representatives and Senate throughout that process.
