A City of People
|Safe Routes to Schools Program|
The Oregon City Schools and the City of Oregon have formed a partnership to promote and encourage children to safely walk and bicycle to school. Our plan is developed under the guidelines of the National Safe Routes To School (SRTS) Program. The plan includes encouragement, enforcement, evaluation, education, and engineering strategies. We hope that implementing this plan will lead more children to a healthier lifestyle that is fun and safe for the children of Oregon.Other benefits will include an increased sense of community around our schools, reduced traffic congestion, less pollution, and lower environmental costs. Currently, the Safe Routes to Schools Program in Oregon is being initially implemented at Starr Elementary School and Fassett Middle School.
