A school in California that has been considered underperforming since the 1990s is reporting gains in student achievement and other progress since adopting an expanded learning-time model, education reporter Nora Fleming writes in this blog post. According to a study from the National Center of Time & Learning, in the 2010-11 school year -- the first year the program was in place -- student achievement on English language arts exams rose by 14 points and a 23-point gain was reported in math. Besides expanding learning time, the school also focused on student data and worked to improve the school climate and behavior.
