Walk Audits in 4 Schools in East Palo Alto and Menlo Park
Ravenswood City School District includes 4 schools – Los Robles-Ronald McNair Academy, Belle Haven Elementary, Costaño School of the Arts, and Cesar Chavez Ravenswood Middle School. The district caters to around 90% of students who are eligible for Free and Reduced Price Meals. They have been considered a high- priority for advancing school travel safety as they are in under-resourced neighborhoods of East Palo Alto and Menlo Park. By partnering with the District, San Mateo County Office of Education, City of East Palo Alto and Menlo Park, Stanford Our Voice Initiative and local organizations, we are planning to conduct walk assessments around these schools that will lead to programmatic safety measures, street improvements, and possible institutional policy changes based on community feedback. Stay tuned as the work takes shape!
