We sent home a parent survey before we started our SRTS program. If we are just now starting our SRTS program, should we distribute another parent survey?

As you distributed the parent survey before your SRTS program started, you could use the initial survey results as "before program" or "baseline" information. If you are interested in documenting changes in students' travel modes and parents' perceptions about traveling to/from school as a result of your SRTS program, we encourage you to distribute the parent survey again after your program has carried out some SRTS activities or has completed a SRTS engineering project. For more information about ways to identify walking and biking-related issues in your area, improve the SRTS activities you conduct, and understand the results of your programs evaluations, we recommend that you reference our Evaluation Guide.
