SRTS Local Policy Guide
The Safe Routes to School National Partnership (SRTSNP) released the “Safe Routes to School Local Policy Guide.” The Local Policy Guide was developed to help local communities and schools create, enact, and implement policies which support active, healthy environments that encourage safe walking, bicycling and physical activity by children. It does this through what it calls a "Health in All Policies" approach. The guide was funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Public Health Association (APHA).
The Guide highlights strategies to advance policy change and includes more than twenty real-life policy change examples.
