Colorado, along with Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and Tennessee have been chosen to participate in the TIME Collaborative pilot program which will add at least 300 hours of learning time to the public school calendar starting in 2013. TIME, which stands for Time for Innovation Matters in Education, is a three-year pilot that will affect nearly 20,000 students and begin with 40 schools and hopefully expand – particularly to schools in low-income communities. 5,000 students and four districts in Colorado will be taking part; Boulder Valley Schools, Denver Public Schools, Adams 50 (Westminster), and Jefferson County.
I graduated from the University of Denver with a B.A. in History (minor in Political Science) and the University of Wyoming with a Master of Public Administration. I am an experienced copywriter and content manager. I am also a former intern/research associate for the Education Policy Center at the Independence Institute in Denver, Colorado and have previously blogged for National School Choice Week.
