CA Success Stories

Southeastern San Diego

The Center for Healthier Communities at Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego was awarded Federal Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Funding to support walking and bicycling to schools district wide – at 26 elementary schools – in Southeastern San Diego. The program is currently in the process of identifying 6 schools in the District with the highest need. These schools will be selected based on collision rates, low walking and biking rates, and overall need. These 6 schools will engage in comprehensive Safe Routes to School activities – the remaining 20 schools will receive technical support and resources – but not at the concentrated levels as the 6 other schools. We profiled this best practice on our blog, view the complete story here.
