Learning Initiatives

Massachusetts schools have gone under a recent redesign. One of these elements of this redesign is what the Department of Education (DOE) refers to as Expanded Learning time. This initiative has the goal of expanding and utilizing the time spent in school to be responsive to students' needs, both academic and otherwise. Added to this redesign is the Innovation Schools initiative, that allows educators to develop new schools, 'schools-within-a-school', and more, to ultimately help increase student achievement while maintaining funding within district bounds. Personalized learning has also been taking center stage, in a partnership between the MA DOE and LearnLaunch that includes many school districts across the state.
