Our "Areas to Expand" focus on programs and strategies currently being used in some schools within the District which were identified as serving one or more areas of need. The Framework for Action recommends finding ways to support the expansion of these ideas into more schools, as well as continuing to explore other existing programs to recommend for expansion. The table of recommendations for expansion (below) contains examples of initiatives, programs, and approaches the address one or more of the Five Areas of Need identified in the Framework.
In the 2017-18 school year, a Late Start program is being piloted in multiple middle schools across the District. This recommendation falls under "Flexible Scheduling" in the table below. Additionally, resources and research supporting the implementation of a successful advisory program have also been curated for schools. For more on these two programs, click the "Late Start" or "Advisory" buttons on the right.
