What is Safe Routes to School?
 
Safe Routes to School strives to build a collaborative community to support students using alternative transportation (walking, biking, skating and scooting) to and from school with the goal to encourage lifelong healthy habits and create a more livable environment for the community.

The 6 E’s of Safe Routes to School:
  • Education – providing age appropriate instruction on bike and pedestrian safety
  • Encouragement – building interest in active/alternative transportation
  • Engineering – building safe and effective infrastructure in the community and at school sites
  • Enforcement – enforcing safe bike, pedestrian and driving rules
  • Evaluation – using collected data to assess efforts to grow and develop new programs
  • Equity – ensuring that programs benefit all students and individuals in a community
 
Safe Routes at Daves Avenue, with the support of our Home & School Club, focuses on the Education and Encouragement of students and their families through grade-level specific learning opportunities and school-wide events. Our goal is to increase the number of students and families who walk, bike, skate, scooter, and carpool to school.
