Seven Connecticut Schools to Extend Teaching Day

Washington—More than 3,100 Connecticut students will have a longer school day starting in the 2013-14 school year, part of an experiment in five states to boost scholastic achievement.

“We know our teachers and students need more time in the classroom,” said Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.

Malloy and Connecticut Commissioner of Education Stefan Pryor were in Washington today to accept the first of several annual $300,000 grants from the Ford Foundation and the National Center on Time and Learning. The money will be used to plan, and later fund, a school year that will grow by at least 300 hours in seven Connecticut schools. They are located in East Hartford, Meriden and New London.

O’Connell Elementary in East Hartford and Casmir Pulaski Elementary and John Barry Elementary in Meriden will be involved in the pilot program, as well as New London’s Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School, Jennings Elementary, Nathan Hale Elementary and Winthrop Elementary.
