The nonprofit proposed to work with the Travis School District on recess programs aims to enhance the community and the power of play, a representative says.
School district staff pulled the proposal and Hector Salazar, an account manager for Oakland-based Playworks, said while the matter has concluded, the community should know the nonprofit’s approach.
“It has to be a good fit,” he said of Playworks. “I’m not going to force it on anybody.”
Attention to a $2,000-a-day fee for a follow-up consultation, part of the proposed $47,900 pact, could have overshadowed the value of the recess program, Salazar said.
