Encouraging SRTS At Your School

  • Contact your PE teacher, Principal and PTO to start raising awareness of Safe Routes to School issues
  • Contact your Healthy School Team to start raising awareness of Safe Routes to School issues
  • Teach road safety in class time
  • Start a walking school bus
  • Organize a bike train
  • Organize a mileage contest
  • Carry out walking and cycling audits to identify infrastructure shortcomings and opportunities at the school and in the surrounding neighborhood
  • Look for grant funding opportunities (e.g. People for Bikes Community Grant for bike racks, Specialized Foundation cycling in the curriculum grant, TN Dept of Health grants) to meet any shortcomings
  • Review school policies about transportation issues (restrictive rules about walking and cycling, changing your child's dismissal mode, preferential dismissal for walkers, etc) and get them changed
  • Contact us to request a bike rodeo -- an on-bike workshop to teach children basic bicycle and road safety skills
  • Participate in Walk to School Day (October 2018) or Walk and Roll to School Day (May 2018)
