As part of the Springboard to Active Schools initiative, NNPHI collaborated with Health Resources in Action and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to develop “Keep Recess in Schools.” Intended for partners in both the education and public health fields, this brief shares national data describing trends in the state of recess in U.S. 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.
