Hello Safe Routes 2 School Cupertino,


Thank you all very much for another productive and well attended Working Group meeting this week! Attached are the agenda, handouts, and powerpoint presentation from the meeting. These materials will also be accessible online here by early next week. For those of you who could not attend the meeting, here are some key takeaways:


  • I discussed the methods of data collection we are implementing this year and the upcoming dates of collection. All CUSD schools will participate in Fall student survey collection using the National Safe Routes to School template. The dates will be this October 26th, 27th, and 28th. Our four pilot CUSD schools (and hopefully MVHS and CHS) will participate in administering Safe Routes to School Parent Surveys. These surveys will be available online from November 1st, 2015 – January 1st, 2015 with links provided to each school prior to November 1st. Please see the attached powerpoint and “Walk Audit. Data Gathering Worksheet” for more details
  • I discussed what a Walk Audit is and the benefits of going through this process. I’d like to set up a Walk Audit in each of our Pilot Schools this school year and need your help to do so! Please see the powerpoint and “Walk Audit. Data Gathering Worksheet” for more information on Walk Audits
  • We voted on a banner design for our program and I need your votes! Please view the “Banner Design Vote.Roses and Thorns” handout and let me know which design you like best (1, 2, or 3)


Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 18th at City Hall in the EOC Conference Room. Due to an influx of people arriving 10-15 minutes late at the last couple of meetings, I have decided to shift the meeting time frame 30 minutes later from 4:30 – 6 PM. I hope that this will help to accommodate more schedules. As always, please email me with any questions, concerns, ideas, follow-ups, etc.


Hope to see you all the 18th!
