About Us

Time for Equity is an AISR project that builds the capacity of schools,districts, communities, and partner organizations to improve educational opportunities in the nation’s most underserved school systems through expanded and reimagined learning time. The Time for Equity Indicators Framework presents a set of 24 indicators that school communities can use as “yardsticks” to measure and refine their efforts to create expanded and improved learning opportunities for young people. The framework was developed through a participatory research process that engaged school designers, researchers, community organizers, and other Ford Foundation grantees from around the nation in defining what matters and what should be measured to help advance equity in our collective work.

AISR Principal Associate Michelle Renée describes the development of the Time for Equity Framework and discusses how it leverages time to achieve school equity for all children.
