Bacich School Neighborhood Captains

Huge Turnout for Bike to School Day

There were 12 bike trains converging on Bacich School on Naitonal Bike to School Day 2014. Coffee and snacks were generously donated by Peets Bon Air, Rustic Bakery, Clif, and Somersault. The Village Peddler set up a Bike Safety Station to do helmet and seat adjustments. Members of the Kentfield Fire Dept, CHP, and the County Sheriff were also there.

Neighborhood Program at Kentfield Schools

Kentfield School District offers a comprehensive program to encourage its parents to choose a Green Ways to School.  With 18 neighborhood organizers, Kentfield Schools has createed along lasting SchoolPool networks for their parents that can last throughout the school year and beyond.

The Kentfield Safe Routes to Schools Task Force has developed a system in which they have divided the district into six neighborhoods and assigned each program a captain.   These captains were provided the contact information for everyone in their neighborhood.   Captains then contact those in their neighborhood and assist their neighbors in establishing SchoolPool networks to walk, bike or carpool together.  The program also designates drop off lots and park and walk locations for those who live too far to walk or bike.  Volunteer parent Heather McPhail Sridharan will help the Captains organize their neighbors. This ground breaking program could be the future for other schools in Marin. View the Maps and tools at the Kent District Site.

Bacich Wins Green Ways to School Award

Bacich School won the 2011 Program Achievement Award for increasing green trips by 21% since joining the program in 2001.  Congratulations to current team leader Amy Jones and all the team at Bacich over the years for outstanding achievement.
