More Time for Learning: ELT Initiatives & Enrichment Opportunities

The Collaborative for Building After-School Systems (CBASS) published this policy brief to explore Expanded Learning Time (ELT) initiatives, a school reform strategy that lengthens the traditional school day or year to increase learning time. This brief describes the momentum of various ELT initiatives around the country, identifies differences between ELT and traditional after-school programs, and calls for policymakers to explore how ELT might serve as an opportunity to strengthen connections between school and after-school systems.
