Oregon Safe Routes To School Program

The Oregon Safe Routes To School Program is offering free weekday training workshops in April and May to schools, local agencies, parents and interested parties who would like to know more about the SRTS program, the required Action Plan and the soon-to-be announced funding program for funding Engineering projects and Education, Encouragement and Enforcement programs. The workshops should cover SRTS partnerships and best practices, eligible projects, and how a SRTS School Team should evaluate the barriers and hazards to children walking and biking to K-8 schools. Workshops will take place in Albany, Ashland, Bend, Eugene, John Day, LaGrande, and Portland. The working agenda is attached. Registration is required
The Oregon SRTS Action Plan Template, Student Tally and Parent Survey may be downloaded from the Transportation Safety Division website.
