What is a Walking School Bus?
A Walking School Bus is a group of students walking together to school with one or more adult leaders. It departs at a specific time and follows a pre-defined route.
Why a Walking School Bus?
A Walking School Bus serves two main purposes:
- As a transitionary program for students who are approaching independent mobility. Therefore, a Walking School Bus will incorporate training elements such as crossing roads, learning about signage, and learning about the best route to school.
- As a safe and dependable transportation option for students.
