Event description

Description

Join the Massachusetts Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program for its 2018 National Course. Hosted on June 5th at the Arlington Middle School in Lawrence, this one-day, introductory workshop builds community ownership in SRTS programs by teaching the 6 E's (Engineering, Education, Enforcement, Encouragement, Evaluation, and Equity).

The National Course provides a hands-on experience in order to help you assess conditions around the host school to identify barriers to walking and biking and brainstorm potential solutions. This is a great opportunity for anyone with an interest in safety, obesity prevention, physical activity promotion, transportation, bicycling, walking, children's health, or the school neighborhood. This course is specifically designed for planners, parents, law enforcement officers, school administrators, transportation engineers, local advocates, community leaders, and state decision-makers.

Course highlights include:

  • Core content blended with group discussion

  • Field observation (walking assessment)

  • Identification of local problems and solutions

A continental breakfast and light lunch will be provided. Space is limited. Street parking is available for this event.

Please register each individual attending so that we may have an accurate representation of all attendees.
