The Safe Routes to School program is designed to work with parent groups, children and school staff to encourage students to walk and bike to and from schools. The SRTS Coalition is made up of people and organizations needed to enable the education, engineering and enforcement of practices and infrastructure to support safe walking and biking.
Big or small, all efforts get you and your students outside, active and ready to learn! Contact Dick Winters, your Safe Routes to School Coordinator, at 980-314-9067with questions.
Walk your children to school and share some extra time together as part of International Walk to School Day! International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools have participated in International Walk to School Day since 1997.
