The Santa Clara County Public Health Department in California, Traffic Safe Communities Network (TSCN), and the Santa Clara County Safe Routes to School Providers Group published this “Safe Routes for All” video showing various people in the South Bay expressing their support for Safe Routes.
A written Safe Routes to School policy focuses school district staff in encouraging active transportation to school.
To use the online toolkit, all you need to do is plug in some basic facts about your local school district, and select from among one to four options available in the various policy areas. You then punch the GO button to generate your own Safe Routes to School Policy for adoption by your local school district board.
