Oregon Safe Routes to School Recognition Level Program
Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is all about creating safe, convenient, and fun opportunities for children to bicycle and walk to and from schools. This is important for the health and safety of our kids and to foster the creation of livable, vibrant communities. SRTS programs increase physical activity and improve unsafe walking and bicycling conditions on routes to and from school and throughout the community. Learn more about SRTS in Oregon on our website: www.oregonsaferoutes.org.

Complete this form to nominate your school for the Oregon Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Recognition Level Program. Your school will receive a banner with corresponding stickers to designate your school's level as well as a welcome packet with further information and ideas to sustain and improve your school's level. More information on recognition levels can be found at: https://www.oregonsaferoutes.org/get-recognized/

We know that not all schools have the resources to participate in these activities, but this information helps us track which schools are participating in different activities, so we can celebrate the great work happening around the state and understand how the Oregon SRTS Network can help local practitioners reach more students.

Thank you for all that you do to improve safety for students in Oregon!
