After a year of collaboration with the Halton District School Board (HDSB) the Region closed a successful pilot that worked on "getting kids" to use active transport to travel to school. The pilot culminated with a final report630KB containing 22 recommendations for the HDSB to consider if they were to continue the program. The HDSB responded by approving a budget to expand the program to 25 more schools in the 2009-2010 school year.
In January 2010, the Halton Catholic District School Board committed to the participation of 5 of its schools in the project.
The expansion project at the Halton District School Board ended in July 2011. The Health Department continues to promote students using active transportation to school and supports local school boards and other municipalities interested in starting the program.
If you are interested in starting the program in your area, or have questions about the projects, you can contact Jennifer Jenkins-Scott, Health Promoter, at 905-825-6000 x7386, for consultations or presentations.
"Active & Safe Routes to School promotes the use of active and efficient transportation for the daily trip to school, addressing health and traffic safety issues while taking action on air pollution and climate change."
