Through Pennsylvania’s Safe Routes to School program, a series of five videos promoting bicycle safety was developed. Video 1, “Before You Ride,” is targeted at elementary school students and their parents, but serves as a good refresher for older riders or new riders! This video covers basics such as bike selection, helmet fitting, bicycle safety checks, and how to securely park a bike.
School Safety Partners is dedicated to creating long-term funding partnerships to support school safety best practices. We are both a community of interest and a facilitator of joint research projects, reaching out to the general public as well as stakeholders in the public, private, non-profit, and academic sectors. Our purpose is to create a space for stakeholders where true partnering can occur in order to make school safety sustainable beyond Federal funding. Since our start in January, 2008, our projects have addressed the legislative, training, compliance, funding, and public awareness sides of school safety.
