Mapping the Field: A Report on Expanded Time Schools in America

Author: Jessica Edwards

Mapping the Field: A Report on Expanded-Time Schools in America, identifies 1,002 expanded-time schools across the United States, up from 655 schools identified the last time NCTL issued the report, in 2009 – an increase of 53 percent. These 1,002 schools serve 520,000 students, up from 300,000 in the 2009 report. The 2012 report defines expanded-time schools as public schools that expand learning time for all enrolled students; operate with a school day of at least seven hours; and have a substantially longer day or year when compared with surrounding public schools.
