Reclaim Unstructured Time


Schools review and revise unstructured time within and outside the formal school day to improve academic, social, and emotional success. 


Jeremiah Curtin Leadership Academy partners with a national, nonprofit organization called Playworks to focus on positive language and problem-solving techniques students can use during recess. Overall, Playworks has created a positive, safe play environment in the school. Students are taking on leadership roles as they are becoming “Junior Coaches.” The students transfer problem-solving strategies they have learned from Playworks into the classroom.
