Dozens more Chicago schools are about to adopt longer school days.

CPS officials just announced that 36 charter schools citywide have applied for the longer school day grant. Those schools will transition to a longer day starting in January.

CPS plans to implement a 90-minute longer day district-wide in fall 2012.

Thirteen CPS schools have already opted to participate in the longer school day pioneer program.
