We are excitedly counting down the days until we receive our fabulous school access guide from West Cycle.
It was critical that we heard from a wide range of students and families to learn more about popular travel routes. Getting to know the area will help us to meet one of our key priorities - improving safety via infrastructure improvements - to better serve the local community.
To get this information, our team distributed area maps to each class. Students were invited to take the maps home to complete with their families, to then bring them back in to finish off in class. Our team carefully looked through the maps to mark key areas and sort the maps into piles of similar routes.
According to one of our Your Move team members, K, mapping's "pretty good"!
Now that we have this information, we've edited our school access guide to better reflect community needs. Our Safe Routes to School project is well underway, and it's so exciting to watch it all come together. Great work, team!
