Elementary Schedule Audit

Discover your schedule's strengths and areas for improvement compared to best practices so that you can make the most of every school day.

Time is one of the most precious yet often underutilized resources to support student achievement. This is especially true for students who struggle and require additional support. Unfortunately, finding the time to do what school and districts know will better serve students too often seems unachievable. “The schedule gets in the way,” is a frequent refrain. But there is a solution. Learn how hundreds of schools, nationwide, are better serving students and improving equitywithout increasing spending.

Are you making the most of each day or is your schedule getting in the way?
