In Jan 2017, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and SHAPE America released new guidance documents that provide schools with:
- Nineteen evidence-based strategies for recess
- A planning guide
- A template to help develop a written recess plan that integrates these strategies
Playworks contributed to the development of these guidance documents and we’re excited that the CDC and SHAPE America have taken the step to publicly recognize the importance of recess in the development of our kids.
