Safe Routes to School Curricula Guide
The Safe Routes to School National Partnership published a guide to curricula teaching bicycle and pedestrian safety. The guide is designed to be used by educational practitioners and policy makers, government employees, parents, and students.
In its first two sections, the guide provides background and tips for systematic implementation of bicycle and pedestrian safety education. The ‘Policies and Funding’ and the ‘Description of Categories’ sections will help teachers, parents, after-school instructors, bike club leaders, and bicycle and pedestrian professionals choose a curriculum that meets their needs. The ‘Inventory’ section contains a matrix of basic information regarding various curricula around the country. These are then described in more detail in the ‘Summary’ section, which offers one-page snapshots of each program, as well as a links to more information.
