AFT Handbook: Collaborating on time for extended learning

AFT Handbook: It's About Time
The AFT's new handbook, "It's About Time: Lessons from Expanded Learning Time in Meriden, Conn.," explains how three elementary schools redesigned their use of time and offers valuable information that can help other unions work with districts and significantly increase opportunities for at-risk students. The Meriden initiative has been supported over the past three years with grants from the AFT Innovation Fund, as well as federal and state funding. The manual provides suggestions and advice for educators and school officials interested in both expanding learning time for students and collaboration time for teachers.
