Safe Routes to School for Seattle
February 26, 2020 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
“At Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, we believe that every child deserves to be able to walk or bike to school safely and comfortably.
This year, we are working to change Seattle School District policies and programs so that helping students walk and bike to school goes from an afterthought to a priority.
Join us to discuss how we can work together this year to get kids safely to and from school.
Seattle Neighborhood Greenways is pushing for systemic solutions to help improve the Safe Routes to School program citywide:
1) Increase funding for safe streets near schools (crosswalks, sidewalks, speed humps, etc.).
2) Reform transportation planning when schools are refurbished or rebuilt.
3) Improve programs such as the School Crossing Guard program, which currently has vacant positions at one in three schools, and Walking School Bus and Biking School Bus programs.
4) Connect with individual school communities and champion community-identified priorities.
Help us brainstorm, draft plans, and identify next steps for this important campaign.
