Back to School 2020: Recommendations for Safe Routes to School Programming

As school resumes in the fall, Safe Routes to School practitioners will be looking for guidance on how to implement their programs remotely, in-person, and/or through a hybrid model. Using the Six E’s framework – Education, Engineering, Evaluation, Encouragement, Engagement, Equity – the Back to School 2020 Working Group has developed Back to School 2020: Recommendations for Safe Routes to School Programming, a comprehensive set of short-term, actionable recommendations for implementing Safe Routes to School programs this fall.

Safe Routes to School COVID-19 Resource Tracking Document

Members of the Safe Routes to School listserve have organically been crowdsourcing ideas for how to continue engaging youth and families while schools are closed, opportunities for remote learning and working, adjustments to messaging, policy opportunities created by this pandemic, and more. To that aim, we have created a Safe Routes to School Listserv COVID-19 tracking document where we have compiled all the resources that have been shared so far and which we will continue to update.
