Become a Parent Champion
The Safe Routes to School program relies on parent volunteers and is a vital connection to increasing the number of students who walk, bike or roll to school. Parent volunteers work to organize events, act as crossing guards, spread the word to other parents and school staff, act as liaisons between the Safe Routes to School coordinator and their child’s school and much, much more.
Portland Public Schools’ Safe Routes to School program hopes that more parents (and grandparents too!) will get involved and act as Parent Champions for their schools.
Contact the Safe Routes to School Coordinator to find out if your school has a champion and how you can help!
Student safety patrols enhance enforcement of drop-off and pick-up procedures at school by increasing safety for students and traffic flow efficiency for parents. Such efforts allow students to participate in promoting traffic safety where they learn skills they can use in their everyday lives. Parent volunteers coordinate the student trainings and patrol.
