Finish Up Your Policy
Your policy has some great language, and will put your district ahead of the game.
Your final policy is below. If you'd like to make it even more effective, you may want to consider adding one or more of the following provisions:
- Support for Active Transportation
- Support for Safe Routes to School
- Limiting Restrictions on Active Transportation
- Student Arrival and Dismissal
- School Travel Plan: Moving Beyond the Bus
- School Siting
If you'd like to revise your policy, you may click any section in the menu on the left and adjust your choices. Then click "Finish" at the bottom of the list to return here and see your updated score.
When you're satisfied with your choices you may download your entire policy in RTF format. This format will enable you to modify and further personalize your policy in Microsoft Word, Apple iWork, or any other word processor.
Now that you have your tailored Safe Routes to School policy, you’ll want to double check a few things.
First, does it accurately reflect the distribution of authority between the state, school board, and local government in your state? Your school attorney or other district personnel should be able to easily assess this. Modify the language in the policy if need be.
Second, does the policy appear in the format that is used by your district? If you don’t want to pass it as a board policy, tailor it to the format of a resolution or set of administrative regulations.
