Walking School Bus

The walking school bus(WSB) program is a great way to engage residents, activate neighborhoods and get kids walking to school. To help empower communities we created the Iowa Walking School Bus Guide. This guide will give you the information you need to help start your communities own Walking School Bus.

Iowa Safe Routes to Schools has created a wealth of useful templates from Volunteer Application, Parent Permission Slips, Student Code of Code, Sample Letter to Parents, and a Sample Press Release all in effort to help simplify and streamline the process for your walking school bus. If you would like all of the documents mentioned in this paragraph, click here.

Additionally, we have created a Walking School Bus Driver Training, with a helpful tips sheet, as well as Walking School Bus Driver Assessment as a way to check on learning.

The information in the hyperlinks above can provide a trove of information regarding WSB’s. If you have further questions please email jared@iowabike.org.
