OSPI announces Walk and Bike to School Day on Wednesday, the 9th. (I think the International Day is today but the U.S. day is Wednesday.)
Details can be found by checking your local school/district or community
partners such as health departments, police departments, city leaders,
and non-profit organizations. A Web site,
www.walkbiketoschool.org, has been established to register schools and to check which schools have posted their events.
In partnership with Washington Department of Transportation, Feet
First, and the Washington Bicycle Alliance, the Office of Superintendent
of Public Instruction will be accepting grant applications in November.
The grants will support 10 school districts to implement Safe Routes to
School Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Education programs in middle
school physical education classes in the 2013-2014 school year.
The grant application will be posted to the Safe Routes to School Website at:
