School District Policies

Promoting Safe Routes to School Through Policy

One important way to strengthen your Safe Routes to School program is by passing a Safe Routes to School district policy. 

A district policy demonstrates your school board’s backing for Safe Routes to School, creates a permanent institutional commitment, establishes consistent roles and expectations within the district, and can eliminate obstacles to Safe Routes to School activities and efforts. A new fact sheet highlights how districts can pass simple or in-depth policies that set out a basic commitment to Safe Routes to School or go further and detail actions, roles, and principles that are strongly supportive of active travel to school.
