School Site Assessment

Walk Audit photo

A school walk audit is a school/community event used to identify and evaluate the safety issues around a school. Safe Routes to Schools staff and the school community identify engineering and/or infrastructure treatments that are the most appropriate solution for that school.

Participants can include parents, staff, students, city or county planners and engineers traffic safety officers, and local elected officials. Safe Routes to Schools offers school walk audits on a limited basis. Contact us to request a walk audit and complete this Walking Audit Request Form.

After the Audit: Improvement Plans

After an audit, our planners draw up an improvement plan showing possible solutions to identified issues. The school district and city/county then provide input on the plans recommendations before it is finalized. Once complete, we hand our the plans to the city or county for use in grant funding applications like the Active Transportation Program.
