Safe Routes to School
This school year, St. Francis Area Schools was awarded a planning assistance grant from the Minnesota Department of Transportation to create a Safe Routes to School plan for St. Francis Elementary, Middle and High Schools.
Safe Routes to School is a national and international initiative to increase the number of children who walk and bike to school. This is done through infrastructure improvements around schools, as well as non-infrastructure programs at school and in the community. This planning process will result in recommendations for each of the schools.
Over the next few months, data will be collected from students, staff, parents and community members through online surveys, mapping surveys and a planning workshop. From the data gathered, a school plan will establish how walking and biking to school can be easier, safer and more comfortable for families.
