More and Better Learning, Year Two: Evaluation Findings from ExpandED Schools 2012-2013

Date Added:

ExpandED Schools Year Two Report

In 2011, TASC launched a national demonstration of its ExpandED Schools initiative in 11 elementary and middle schools in New York City, Baltimore and New Orleans. TASC helps each school partner with a strong youth-serving community organization, such as a settlement house or community development corporation, to add three hours to the conventional six-and-a-half hour school day. Teachers and principals coalesce with their community partners into powerful teams that support students cognitively, physically and emotionally. Together they redesign schools to meet their shared goals for students and deliver on the promise of a great public education for every child.

This report presents findings from the second year of this project -- evaluated by Policy Studies Associates (PSA), TASC’s external evaluator for the national demonstration -- as schools begin to break from the outdated, 19th-century school calendar.
