Stratford Schools Participate in School Travel Planning

AMDSB schools in Stratford are participating in the school travel planning project for the 2019/2020 school year. This project aims to increase the amount of kids walking/wheeling to school and taking the school bus (depending if in the walk zone or bus zone) as a way to reduce congestion in the school zone and create a safer environment.
 
The project involves school-level committees working together on a school travel plan, which is a document that summarizes current travel patterns and traffic problems, identifies solutions, and encourages walking/wheeling to school through different action items.
 
Everyone in the school community will benefit from the school travel plan as it will provide them with the opportunity to:
 
a) Reduce traffic congestion around schools, increasing student safety
b) Improve physical and mental health
c) Reduce air pollution and help the environment
