Some students in the Boston and Salem school districts will soon be spending a lot more time in the classroom.

They are joining a program already in place in Lawrence and Fall River that adds 300 hours a year to the school calendar as part of the Time for Innovation Matters in Education Collaborative. An official announcement will be made later on Wednesday.

Schools already in the program are using the extra time for small-group tutoring, advanced studies, and training in technology. There’s also time for fitness, cooking, theater, or yoga classes.

We want to know: Do you think longer school days are needed, and how would you want your district to use the extra classroom time? Leave a comment below.
