The Cuyahoga County Board of Health has helped three local school districts secure Ohio Department of Transportation’s Safe Routes to School Program funding that will help promote safe physical activity for students.

The program has awarded more than $600,000 in state funding to Brooklyn City Schools and East Cleveland City Schools, as well as engineering assistance to South Euclid-Lyndhurst City Schools. Cuyahoga County Board of Health will work with each district and their respective municipal governments to create improved methods of safely moving children to and from school.

Students from kindergarten through eight-grade will learn safe ways of walking and biking to school utilizing the program’s “5 Es” of safety: Engineering, Education, Enforcement, Encouragement and Evaluation.

Along with construction costs, funding will go towards equipment and training for local police officers, formation of student and parent safety patrols, creation of a Walking School Bus program and a Police Bike Patrol
