Introducing the Back to School 2020 Working Group!

The Safe Routes Partnership is excited to introduce the Back to School 2020 Working Group participants! We selected 18 individuals from around 180 applications from Safe Routes to School coordinators, parents, teachers, planners, crossing guards and advocates who volunteered their time and expertise. We are so encouraged by this overwhelming level of interest, and in addition to the Back to School 2020 Working Group, we are organizing some other opportunities to have these important conversations about returning to school, and will share details in the coming weeks. 

The Back to School 2020 Working Group will be working together over the next couple of weeks to develop strategies and resources for effectively implementing Safe Routes to School programs this fall. Our goal is to release recommendations for three different scenarios of Back to School by the end of July, and share broadly with our entire Safe Routes to School community!
