Program 1

Expanded Learning Time/New York City

TASC partners with hundreds of public schools and more than 130 CBOs in
all five boroughs of New York City and elsewhere in the state, to
operate over 100 after-school programs serving 30,000 students in
grades K-12, the majority of whom hail from some of New York's most
disadvantaged communities. CBO partners include small grassroots
organizations, world class museums and universities, more than a dozen
children and family service agencies, and 13 settlement houses.
 
ELT/NYC is TASC’s strategy to reform schools to meet the range of student needs by adding more learning time to the school day, while supporting families, communities and schools working collaboratively. In ELT/NYC, schools partner with community-based organizations (CBOs) to extend the learning day to 6 PM, so that a school day is re-designed to include: 1) more time for core academics (e.g., English language arts, mathematics, social studies and science); 2) individualized instruction and 3) hands-on learning experiences (e.g., robotics, fencing, chess, gardening). Teachers and community partners come together for professional development and work collaboratively to plan and review student data. Our goals are to:

1.       Provide students with more time (30 percent more time to each school day at 10 percent of the cost or 50 percent more time in longer school days and years at 20 percent of the cost).

2.       Demonstrate a sustainable and replicable strategy that integrates education, enrichment and social supports for kids and provides them with rigorous year-round learning.

3.       Improve academic outcomes for students.
