Building community partnerships has bolstered the Safe Routes to School
(SRTS) Program at Kimberly Park Elementary School. Kimberly Park Elementary, an all-minority Title 1 school in Winston-Salem, NC, was one of five schools in a pilot project for SRTS training, according to Judi Lawson Wallace, Winston-Salem's SRTS Coordinator. In choosing their
pilot schools, she said they used a two-fold approach in their selection: first,
they looked at where infrastructure already existed for children to walk safely to school; and then they held one-day SRTS workshops at each school.
