Safe Routes to School Curriculum Support

SWIFT Event ID: 2000004352

Brief Description: The goal of this work is the successful implementation of the Walk! Bike Fun! curriculum by providing several methods of support to the schools using it.
- The first method of support is to run 6-12 teacher trainings annually to train physical education teachers and other youth educators in bike and pedestrian safety. The training sessions will be held regionally to reach as many schools as feasible. The goal of the training sessions is to provide anyone teaching the Walk! Bike! Fun! curriculum the skills and resources necessary to teach bike and pedestrian safety to their students.
- The second method is to offer technical assistance and support to schools using the Walk! Bike! Fun! curriculum. Evaluation results showed a high demand for technical assistance to help teachers the first time they taught the bicycle unit. Thus, teachers should have the support of experts to help answer their questions and guide them through the curriculum. The training sessions provide an opportunity to build the network of support between the trainers and teachers using the curriculum.
- The third method is to update the curriculum to incorporate feedback from teachers surveyed after teaching Walk! Bike! Fun!
