Safe Routes to School Program
The Safe Routes to School program in San Juan Unified is a program that works to increase students walking and bicycling to school, as well as using transit and carpooling.
School sites and communities are assessed to determine what concerns, procedures and infrastructure may be preventing students from walking and bicycling, and then remove or reduce those barriers.
The program is currently funding through district funds allocated by San Juan's Safe Schools Office, part of the Community Relations Department. It will be funded by a Active Transportation Program cycle 4 (ATP4) grant, April 2020 through June 2022. It has been funded in the past by a variety of federal and state transportation grants.
