Following a comprehensive review of recess practices and input from the community and employees, Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) has announced a substantial increase in recess time for full-day kindergarten and first through fifth grades beginning next year.

Recess for full-day kindergarten will increase from 20 to 40 minutes day, a 100% increase. The change calls for 15 minutes to happen before or after physical education (PE), and 25 minutes elsewhere in the instructional day, away from the regular PE time.
