The After-School Corporation (TASC) will develop and test a high school Expanded Learning Time (ELT) model that can be scaled nationally. The model aims to improve college and career outcomes by engaging schools and community organizations to redesign the traditional school day. These school-community partnerships will develop and support expanded learning opportunities for students, including apprenticeships and non-traditional credit-earning activities. Funds will be used to: (1) form a national advisory group of practitioners, researchers, and other leaders to address conceptual questions and influence the development of the model; (2) launch a high school ELT pilot in three to five schools in New York City; and (3) conduct a fiscal analysis of public and private funding streams to support high school ELT.
