As we create healthy communities in Illinois, we’re often expected to do more with less. This interactive forum provides invaluable resources at your fingertips and the chance to interact with professionals and advocates who share your goals. Post your questions and answer questions to help us create lasting, healthy communities in Illinois.
This survey is being conducted by the Safe Routes to School National Partnership, a national nonprofit organization that advances safe walking and bicycling to and from schools and works to support healthy communities for everyone. The purpose of this survey is to identify as many Safe Routes to School programs in the United States (and beyond!) as possible. By compiling this information, we will develop a better understanding of Safe Routes to School programs, identify areas that need additional support, and provide better resources and information related to Safe Routes to School in the United States.
Who should fill out a Safe Routes to School Program Census survey form? THE Safe Routes to School National Partnership is looking for one entry from each Safe Routes to School program. What is a Safe Routes to School program? Any local, regional, or state initiative, by whatever name, that takes action focused on getting more kids walking and biking safely to and from school. If your initiative runs a walking school bus or provides bike education in schools, you are a Safe Routes to School program!
If you think you might be a program but you’re not sure… go ahead and fill out the survey. Note also that the Safe Routes to School National Partnership will share aggregated information publicly. They may contact you for additional information or permission to publish your individual program information.
