Springboard to Active Schools Data Brief: Keep Recess in Schools

The brief also identifies key policies and practices that school districts and schools can apply and implement to promote and implement recess.

Read this brief to learn more about the definition of recess, get a snapshot of current recess practices in the United States, and explore national guidance and practical strategies to improve recess.
