  • Mayor Walsh negotiates plan to expand school day by 40 minutes

    Mayor Martin J. Walsh has announced that, with BPS and the Boston Teacher’s Union (BTU), he has negotiated a proposal to permanently add 40 minutes of learning time to the school day in the Boston Public Schools (BPS). The additional 40 minutes will impact nearly 23,000 elementary and middle school students and is equivalent to adding one month of instruction for elementary students. In addition, the proposal nearly doubles the amount of teacher planning and development time that educators receive.
