Safe Routes Recognition Program Levels
Municipalities and schools (public, private, charter) will be recognized for First Step, Bronze, Silver or Gold Safe Routes to School (SRTS) levels. Municipalities and schools can either be nominated by their Safe Routes Regional Coordinator or can self- nominate for recognition as a result of involvement and commitment to Safe Routes programs in their community or schools. Recipients will be presented with a certificate or award depending on which level they are recognized, and they will also be listed and promoted on the NJ SRTS website and possibly other local media and newsletters facilitated by your respective Regional Coordinator.
Schools and municipalities will work with their Regional Coordinators and NJ SRTS for help with applying for nomination and implementing SRTS programs. Nominees and recipients will be required to implement walk and bike to school events, adopt supportive policies, obtain backing from local constituents, and/or use survey tools to evaluate existing conditions for walking and biking to school.
