SCSD Leading the Way in Reform Through Expanded Learning Time (ELT) Initiative

     Published on   Tagged under:   

In the Syracuse City School District Superintendent Contreras has partnered with several first class cultural and higher education partners to broaden the educational experiences of the children in the District.  She has created two cohorts of expanded-time schools, enabling more opportunity for teachers to collaborate to improve instruction and for students to receive the personalized support in smaller learning groups.

The partners working with the District to provide this enrichment include: Syracuse University, the Museum of Science and Technology, Redhouse/Arts Collaborative, SUNY ESF, Baltimore Woods Nature Center, Syracuse Stage, Peaceful Schools, Catholic Charities and Contact Community Services.  Each of these entities works in concert with their respective school partners to provide enrichment and a robust system of school support.
