POLICIES FOR PUPILS: 
CREATING A STRONG SRTS POLICY
ChangeLab Solutions creates innovative law and policy solutions that transform neighborhoods, cities, and states. We do this because achieving the common good means everyone has safe places to live and be active, nourishing food, and more opportunities to ensure health. Our unique approach, backed by decades of solid research and proven results, helps the public and private sectors make communities more livable, especially for those who are at highest risk because they have the fewest resources.

Students who are physically active, perform better academically

A STRONG SRTS POLICY SHOULD SUPPORT THE 6 E’S
1. It is a policy, not a program. 
2. It is legally feasible. 
3. It is financially feasible. 
4. It is ambitious, yet politically feasible. 
5. Its implementation and enforcement are clear and feasible. 
6. It is data driven and grounded in community. 
7. It accounts for health disparities. 
8. It changes the conversation. 
9. It is one piece of the puzzle. 
ELEMENTS OF A STRONG POLICY
ELEMENT #1 
It is a policy, not a program. 
© 2014 ChangeLab Solutions
•School policies 
•Resolutions 
•Local ordinances 
•Zoning regulations 
•Standards or guidelines 
•Contracts or agreements 
•State and federal laws 
WHAT DO WE MEAN BY POLICY?
SRTS POLICIES AT DIFFERENT LEVELS
WHY IS POLICY IMPORTANT?
PROGRAMS & POLICY 
Example: Eureka, CA
INCLUDING EQUITY IN POLICY 
Equity Goals 
The above goals for Safe Routes to School will be measured citywide and per school. The SRTS program is committed to achieving the goals in all schools, but is especially committed to meeting the goals in schools with high percentages of students and families that have the highest risk of having inequitable access to transportation, including people of color, people experiencing poverty, people with disabilities, and people who experience language barriers. 
Example: Portland, OR
ELEMENT #6 
© 2014 ChangeLab Solutions 
It is data driven and grounded in community.
Community-Grounded Data
USING DATA IN YOUR POLICY 
Example: Portland, OR

Policies for Pupils: Working with School Boards on Walking and Bicycling Policies- Creating a Strong SRTS Policy

  • 1. Diane Dohm, MSCRP Planner POLICIES FOR PUPILS: CREATING A STRONG SRTS POLICY
  • 2. ChangeLab Solutions creates innovative law and policy solutions that transform neighborhoods, cities, and states. We do this because achieving the common good means everyone has safe places to live and be active, nourishing food, and more opportunities to ensure health. Our unique approach, backed by decades of solid research and proven results, helps the public and private sectors make communities more livable, especially for those who are at highest risk because they have the fewest resources.
