Extended Learning Time Program is a strategy intended to increase the amount of time students are learning, especially for the purposes of improving academic achievement and test scores, or reducing learning loss, learning gaps, and achievement gaps.
K-12 Plus and/or Extended Learning Time Planning Grant
The intent of the K-12 Plus and/or Extended Learning Time Planning Grant is to fund professional development, planning time and community outreach or marketing for the K-12 Plus and/or Extended Learning Time Program (ELTP). The funds may be used to pay staff for professional development that addresses curriculum planning as it pertains to additional instructional days in either the K-5 Plus, K-12 Plus, or ELTP Programs. In addition, the funds can be used to promote and/or advertise the programs among the local community. Please complete the K-12 Plus and/or Extended Learning Time Planning Grant Application by 5:00 pm on Thursday, April 28, 2022. The New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) will use this application to guide the program/budget review.
K-12 Plus Program Grant (K12+)
The purpose of the K-12 Plus Program (K12+) is to positively impact student achievement in math and language arts, graduation rates, and even attendance. All school districts are eligible to apply. Initial priority will be for districts and schools that are currently not participating in either the K-5 Plus Program (K5+) or the Extended Learning Time Program (ELTP) in school year 2021-22. The goal is to move towards full participation in either one or both programs in future years. This will be accomplished by allowing districts to apply for a modified or innovative program model for school year 2022-23.
