Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs in Indian Country are faced with many challenges, including a dispersed school population, special school governance, land jurisdiction, funding structures, health disparities and distinctive transportation dynamics.  

In this 60-minute webinar, Katherine Campbell from the U.S. Department of the Interior will first provide an overview of the First Lady's Let's Move! in Indian Country and how the program has teamed up with SRTS in tribal communities.  She will also provide essential Indian Country facts, including basic information about schools and programs, tribal nations and the unique relationship between sovereign tribal nations and the U.S. government.

Michia Casebier, ADOT SRTS program senior planner and president of M.G. Tech Writing LLC, will provide an in-depth look at why SRTS matters in Indian Country and the challenges that SRTS programs in Indian Country face.  Although focusing on Indian Country specifically, Michia's presentation will touch on universal issues such as outreach, overcoming obstacles and sustainability.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn more about SRTS programs in Indian County and how their lessons can translate to success within your own program.

This webinar is part of the SRTS Webinar Series, developed by America Walks and the National Center for Safe Routes to School.   For more information, contact mgulley@americawalks.org.
