Playworks thrives off of the data and outcomes that are measured on a semi-annual and annual basis.
Results from our last year's evaluation on student engagement in school show that because of Playworks 75% of children demonstrated increased levels participation in their school community and classrooms.
Preliminary results from our Mid-Year Survey and Consultative Visits are showing strong school programs this year with almost 97% of teachers, principals and staff want Playworks to return next school year. A strong trend in program quality is the amount of instructional time being returned to teachers, at mid-year it is being reported that teachers are gaining back 7-9 minutes of instructional time per recess period when students come back focused and ready to learn.
We only had 2 office referrals for discipline from the playground all year. That's a dramatic decrease from previous years.
