Centennial’s innovative Extended Learning Time (ELT) Plan

TIME Collaborative school profile about Centennial’s expanded learning time model.

Centennial added 5 days to the student calender for the 2014-15 school year. The school year officially started on Thursday August 21, 2014 for all students ECE-5. Thursday August 21 and Friday August 22 were devoted to Crew and community building and creative experiences for students to kick-off their learning expeditions. The other 3 days added to the calender were all non-student contact days that we will re-purpose as school days.

Beginning with the 2014-15 school year, Centennial’s school day will be 8:00am- 3:45pm for all grade levels ECE-5. This additional time provides longer blocks of uninterrupted learning. More high-quality time every day allows us to implement the Expeditionary Learning model to its fullest potential. The extended school day will also allow all students to engage in enrichment classes after lunch every Wednesday. Students will attend five, 7 week enrichment classes in the areas over the course of the school year.
