Clinton Graceville & Beardsley Schools
Safe Routes to School is a program offered by the Minnesota Department of Transportation that encourages walking and biking to school. The program engages community through a comprehensive process that teaches lifelong habits that support physical activity. The program is driven by the needs of a local community and resources are available to support programming and infrastructure needs.
The outcomes for Safe Routes to School projects look different in every community. The outcomes could look like one or many solutions:
- new education programs to encourage safety
- incentives to students to walk and bike, which creates active and healthy active living
- changing the way we think about walking and biking to school (even if you live 15 miles from the school)
- and sometimes it means infrastructure changes like sidewalks and signage
We are excited to create a unique plan for both the elementary and high schools, but we need your support. Please follow the developments and provide feedback when you are able. Come back to this page for updates and summaries of the progress.
