Mill Valley Establishes Policy for Safe Routes to Schools
The Mill Valley School District adopted a new policy codifying the existing Safe Routes to Schools program in Mill Valley schools at its regular meeting on Tuesday, January 3, 2012.
The policy, which is broken into board and administrative policies, will ensure that the Safe Routes to Schools activities will be recognized as district policy regardless of staff and parent turnover. This includes identifying school site volunteers and teams, participation in the Mill Valley Safe Routes to Schools Task Force, and continuing the traffic safety classes at the schools.
Board Member Raoul Wertz wrote the policy in cooperation with councilmember and SRTS Task Force chair Stephanie Moulton-Peters and staff from the Transportation Authority of Marin’s Safe Routes to Schools program.
