New York is looking for school districts to come up with promising proposals that lengthen the amount of time students spend in school.

The state education department last month issued a request for proposals outlining the state's vision.

The Extended Learning Time Grant Program will provide $20 million in competitive grants to districts over each of the next three years. At least 25 percent more time must be added to the academic calendar or 300 more hours per year.

Applications are due this month.
