Safe Routes to School in Proctor
Safe Routes to School Programs strive to improve the health of kids and the community by making walking and bicycling to school safer, easier and more enjoyable. Programs involve parents, community members, school staff, traffic engineers, city planners, law enforcement officers, community leaders and many others. Planning efforts assess the safety of school travel routes; make changes such as building crosswalks or adding crossing guards; educate students and drivers about safe travel and encourage walking and biking to school. Some programs expand to promote safe walking and bicycling throughout the community.

Safe Routes to School is a national program included in the federal transportation bill and is geared towards kindergarten - 8th graders. The goals of the program are:

1.Enable & encourage children to walk & bike to school
2.Make bicycling & walking to school a safer & more appealing transportation alternative, encouraging healthy lifestyles from an early age (K-8)
3.Facilitate planning, development, & implementation of projects & activities that will improve safety & reduce traffic, fuel consumption, & air pollution in the vicinity of schools


A Steering Committee has been formed for Proctor Safe Routes to School.
