By Nancy Fulford, NCREL, and Louise Dieterle, Leadership Development Associates
Editor's Note: State Education Agencies (SEAs) and select representatives of the NCREL Intermediate Task Force were asked to contribute to the Regional Actions and Agendas section. All were asked to respond to the following questions:
What issues concerning the use of time structures in education have been of interest and/or concern in your state/region?
What is being done or explored to address these issues?
What could policymakers do to effect change in the use of time for educational reform?
Some of the respondents also included "Other" comments and information as well. Louise Dieterle and Nancy Fulford compiled the information and developed this section. Wherever possible, information from several sources was grouped to avoid duplication. When information was specific to the contributing person or to his or her position, the source is clearly noted. This approach was used to maintain the richness of the text. Any questions on the text may be directed to Nancy Fulford, NCREL, or to the state contributors listed.
