Safe Routes to School Program
The Kettering Safety Section provides useful information on developing or improving safe and healthy ways of getting to school. This information can be used in the school community, to help children safely navigate their neighborhood or by teachers as classroom resources. Safety Section members are committed to working pro-actively with school and neighborhood communities to achieve the following outcomes:
1. Enable and encourage children, including those with disabilities, to walk and bicycle to school.
2. Make bicycling and walking to school a safer and more appealing transportation alternative, thereby encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age.
3. Facilitate in the planning, development and implementation of projects and activities that will improve safety and reduce traffic, fuel consumption and air pollution in the vicinity of schools.
