2017 Elementary School Recess Policy Expansion

The Central Health Equity Policy Council is a coalition of 60 community partners who advocate for health equity in Travis County with the goal of achieving wellness for all.

By implementing recess policy, schools can help prevent obesity and diabetes, and promote social, emotional and cognitive benefits for our children.
