5 states adding 300 hours to school year
By ParentInProgress on December 03, 2012
If you live in Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Tennesee or NY, you may see an extra 300 hours of school time next year.
Forty schools total will be adding hours to the day, days to the school year or both in an effort to add classroom time for a more well-rounded curriculum to include art, science, math and music.
The funding comes from "shifting resources" from federal programs. The 5 states all received the waivers to No Child Left Behind.
The pilot program begins in 2013. Hopefully more schools will be added after the three-year trial.
