Events and Newsletters
Sept 15 – 19: Student Travel Tally Week – Student Travel Tally Week is a week set aside in September when schools across the state conduct student travel tallies – quick in-class surveys that provide valuable information on student travel patterns. The information is valuable to set a baseline for comparison, or to see how travel patterns are changing from year to year. If you haven’t taken tallies, check out our Student Travel Tally Week resources and participate this year to earn a Safe Routes to School banner for your school!
Oct. 8: International Walk to School Day – International Walk to School Day or iWalk is a global event that involves schools and communities from over 40 countries worldwide. iWalk is a great opportunity for students, their families, and schools to walk or bike to school and learn about pedestrian safety as well as the benefits of walking and biking. Last year, over 170 schools participated in iWalk. It’s never too early to start planning for your school’s Walk to School Day, be sure to check out WalkBiketoSchool.org for tons of great iWalk resources!
