The Tooele County School District Recess Committee, consisting of teachers, administrators, parents, and community partners, worked collaboratively to create a resource bank for elementary indoor and outdoor recess. As a committee, we all agreed recess is important not just for physical and emotional health, but also for academic achievement. Collectively we support recess and structured brain breaks as a vital part of a student's academic day.
Utah State Board of Education requires a minimum of instructional student contact hours and days for our schools. Principals, along with their staff and with support of their Area Director will develop recess schedules to meet the requirements of the state and district , as well as the meet the needs of our students.
