 Parent Input Needed: Help Create Safer Routes to School
The Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization needs your help to make students’ routes to school safer. Safe Routes to School programs aim to make it safer for students to walk and bike to school and encourage more walking and biking where safety is not a barrier. Not only does walking and biking to school limit traffic congestion, but studies also show that the exercise experienced by walking or bicycling to school helps students perform better on their school work.
We would like to hear your thoughts on walking and bicycling to school.
In your role as a parent and as a community citizen, you have a unique perspective that provides great insight.
Data collection is critical to the planning, implementation, and evaluation of safety programs. The Florida Department of Transportation has funding available to communities to improve roadway
conditions around schools, but candidate areas must
show a need. A crucial part of the application process is the inclusion of parent input.
Brevard County has been very successful in receiving Safe Routes to School funding in the past, but the process continues to get more competitive. This survey can also help the Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization allocate its outreach and educational resources by determining which resources would work best in an area.
Please take 5-10 minutes to complete the Safe Routes to School Survey to
help us improve your child’s route to school.
