ABOUT CITIZEN SCHOOLS:
All children deserve the opportunity to discover and achieve their dreams. Citizen Schools makes this possible for thousands of high-need middle school students nationwide through partnerships with public districts in six states that extend the school day and introduce volunteer and paid adults to increase hands-on learning opportunities. Extended Learning Time or ELT is an evidence-based model, that consistently accelerates the rate of student learning, reduces absenteeism, leads to more students reaching grade-level proficiency, and prepares students for college and beyond.
We are on a mission to reimagine the learning day, and with partners like Bank of America, Google, Cognizant, Cisco, Fidelity, SanDisk and Walmart, we are getting closer to closing the opportunity and achievement gaps every day.
