Safety-based Prioritization of Schools for Safe Routes to School Infrastructure Projects: A Process for Transportation Professionals

The National Center has prepared a new resource, “Safety-based Prioritization of Schools for Safe Routes to School Infrastructure Projects: A Process for Transportation Professionals” that describes a straightforward way to identify the schools and specific locations that have the greatest need for pedestrian infrastructure improvements .

First, the resource guides readers through the process of prioritizing schools – identifying the schools with the greatest need and the greatest potential for improvement. Then, it offers a way to conduct field reviews of the highest-priority schools to further identify conditions and infrastructure needs.

The accompanying Excel worksheet provides a place to track and document information gathered about each school and its relative priority for pedestrian improvements.
