City and School Partnerships to Advance Safe School Travel!
East Palo Alto, Daly City, San Mateo, Redwood City and South San Francisco have been selected for the School Travel Fellowship program rolled out by the San Mateo County Office of Education to foster city-school partnerships to make active school travel safer for students. The interdisciplinary fellowship teams include a representative from city’s public works, transportation planning and/or engineering department, an elected official, school or school district personnel, community member, neighborhood association, and/or other local stakeholders. The fellowship program offers technical assistance, tailored support, and pop-up/ demonstration projects to address specific concerns around the partnering schools. Get Healthy San Mateo County will be supporting East Palo Alto and Redwood City teams.
