National Center Training For SRTS Expands Capacity in So Cal!
May 7, 2013 Leave a comment
This past week 15 instructors and over 60 participants converged on three schools in Southern California to learn about how to start, expand, and manage Safe Routes to School programs in their communities. Trainings were held at Troth St. Elementary in Mira Loma, Rancho Cucamonga Middle School, and Sycamore Elementary in Claremont. Participants learned about the 5 E’s of SRTS (Education, Encouragement, Engineering, Evaluation, and Enforcement) and were presented with best practices from across the country.
It is very exciting to see the SRTS movement continue to grow and expand here in Southern California and on behalf of the National Partnership we would like to thank all of our partners that helped sponsor this event and coordinate activities at each school!
In particular we would like to thank:
- The National Center for Safe Rotues to School
- The California Department of Public Health Technical Advisory Resource Center
- The Riverside County Department of Public Health
- The County of San Bernardino Department of Public Health
- The Los Angeles County MTA (Metro)
- The City of Rancho Cucamonga
- The City of Claremont
- The City of Mira Loma
- Staff and Principals at each of our schools who took time out of their busy day to meet with trainees!
