From Steve Gall:
The TUSD Governing Board passed an elementary school recess mandate starting in the Fall, 2011 at their Special Meeting last night with an unanimous vote, 5-0. It's for a minimum of 60 minutes /week and 3 days/week of structured physical activity. We wanted more minutes/week but it's a start and very sigificant because it's the only Arizona large school district to pass any type of recess mandate so far. We are still working with the Sunnyside School District and on the State level.
