Event Date 1: July 13, 2012 06:30 pm - 07:30 pm

Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Michael Yudin will discuss education reform and the value of extended learning time in helping to turn around low-performing schools during a panel discussion at the Citizen Schools’ second annual Expanded Learning Time Summit on Friday, July 13, at 6:30 p.m. in Cambridge, Mass. The summit will bring together an estimated 200 superintendents, district leaders, principals and other educators to discuss the power and potential of expanded learning time as a key lever for school turnaround.

Earlier this year, Massachusetts received an additional $7.8 million to turn around more of its persistently lowest-achieving schools through the U.S. Education Department's School Improvement Grants (SIG) program. The award provided new funding as part of $535 million included in the fiscal year 2011 budget and made available to states under the program. To date, Massachusetts has received $74.5 million since the SIG program was redesigned in 2009.
