What is a Designated School?

In 2013-14, Fresno Unified School Board alongside Fresno Unified Teacher’s Association spent time together studying what would have the most impact on moving student achievement in our schools who have been under-performing for generations of students.  This led to the CBA Article 65 allowing 40 schools to create more time for students and more collaboration and learning for staff.

  1. Add an additional 30 minutes per day for students with their teacher
  2. Add up to an additional 80 hours – 10 days for teachers to collaborate together to assess where students are in their learning for grade level readiness.
  3. Compensate teachers for the additional efforts due to teaching in schools with complex and complicated challenges.

With the added 30 minutes for students, a student at a Designated School would have up to 18 more days of instruction yearly compared to other students. This allows schools to start closing that gap that exists. Knowing that other extra learning times do exist, Designated School extra time is different as it is not dependent on parent and/or student to voluntarily participate in the extra time.  This time is part of their school day for every child.
