Expanding Learning: A Powerful Strategy for Equity

This issue brief explores how strategies for increased support for expanded learning programs can help reduce the disparities in educational outcomes between student populations. It provides examples from California's efforts to use local funding to enable more lower-income students have access to enrichment opportunities in out-of-school time. Strategies include increased funding for continuous improvement, more professional development, and increased coordination between out-of-school time and the school day by increasing the number of staff who work across both settings. This resource supports resiliency.
