Safe Routes to School Programs

OSPI collaborates with the Washington State Department of Transportation on Safe Routes to School programs, supported by the National Center for Safe Routes to School (NCSRTS), which serves as the information clearinghouse for the federal Safe Routes to School program. These programs enable community leaders, schools and parents across the United States to improve safety and encourage more children, including children with disabilities, to safely walk and bicycle to school. In the process, programs are working to reduce traffic congestion and improve health and the environment, making communities more livable for everyone.  

The Safe Routes to School Bike and Pedestrian Safety Education Program was a two-year grant to OSPI from the Washington State Department of Transportation. It provided bicycle and pedestrian safety education to students in Grade 5 through Grade 8 in 25 school districts across the state. Grants to individual districts were in the range of $20,000 to $25,000 to cover activities from January 2011 through June 2012. The grant also funded the OSPI SRTS Summer Institute organized by the Bicycle Alliance of Washington and Feet First during August, 2012.

Resources funded by this grant continue to be available to all districts at the Safe Routes to School in Washington Web site.  There you can download the Safety Education Curriculum and Other Resources. Links are also posted here:

Evaluations from the SRTS Bike and Pedestrian Safety Education Program

An important component of the 2010-2012 grant from WSDOT was the evaluation process to measure the impact of the Safety Education Curriculum on student transportation options for getting to school. Participating schools were asked to administer several surveys during the grant, including a parent survey and student tally available through the National Council of Safe Routes to School (NCSRTS). The three surveys documented here include:

  • NCSRTS Parent Survey – completed by parents at home before the Safety Education Curriculum was presented
  • NCSRTS Student Arrival and Departure Tally – completed by classroom teachers before and after the Safety Education Curriculum was presented
  • Student Self-Reported Behavior Survey Results – completed by students in the classroom before and after the Safety Education Curriculum was presented

Summaries of the surveys received to date are linked below. During 2012-2013, the Bicycle Alliance of Washington will continue to collect survey data as the program is implemented in the various districts; summaries will be added as they are received.
