Newly Released Plan Will Guide SRTS Activities in Bethel, 4-J and Springfield School Districts

We’re excited to announce the release of our 2017-2021 Strategic Plan, a document that will guide the work of the Eugene-Springfield Safe Routes to School partnership. The plan highlights the goals and action items that our Safe Routes Coordinators and regional support staff will prioritize through the year 2021. Achieving the goals of the plan will require the support of partner agencies and organizations and the continued support of dedicated volunteers.

Here are just a few ideas from the plan that we’re excited about:

• Expanding bicycle and pedestrian safety education so that it reaches 100% of 2nd grade classes (pedestrian safety) and 5th or 6th grade classes (bicycle safety) by the year 2021.

• Expanding annual encouragement activities so that every school in the region participates in an encouragement activity by 2021.

• Creating a comprehensive crossing guard program regionally or within districts.

• Improving bicycle parking at schools.

• Supporting the launch of more walking school buses, bike trains and year-long encouragement activities (e.g. Walking Wednesdays).
