WALKING SCHOOL BUS WORKSHOP
Q: What is a Walking School Bus?
A: An adult-escorted walk to school – a fun, low-cost solution to provide essential physical activity for children.
On March 8, the Arizona Safe Routes To School (SRTS) Program will hold a FREE workshop on how to create and sustain your own Walking School Bus (WSB) program. The workshop will be held at:
