School Trends - New school year brings longer school day for CPS

School Trends - New school year brings longer school day for CPS | Expectations for Student Learning | Scoop.it

Chicago Public Schools chief Jean-Claude Brizard - In a packed auditorium before the ceremonial ringing of the first bell to start a new school year, Brizard told students that a longer school day will bring more academic rigor..

 

"That means more AP (biology), more support for students who need it," Brizard told the crowd. "For elementary schools, it'll mean more recess, more math, more social studies."

 

Lindblom, a selective enrollment school for 7th through 12th graders, saw its school day increase by 41 minutes four days a week. That added time will push the end of the school day to 3:44 on most days and give students more time for classroom instruction scheduled around their needs, said Principal Alan Mather.
