Recess in DCPS

  • The State of Florida requires elementary public schools to provide 100 minutes of supervised, safe, and unstructured free-play recess each week, with at least 20 consecutive minutes per day (FSS 1003.455). The Duval County School Board supports daily recess outdoors (when possible). This page contains the district's Operational Procedures document as well as sample Recess Activities that teachers can use for students to choose from. Scroll down to see each document.
