Georgia Safe Routes to School Guide and Workbook

What’s in the Planning Guide and Workbook?

The Planning Guide is for schools to use in developing a SRTS program. The Planning Guide is organized ac­cording to Resource Center Partner Levels, with chapters aimed at helping Partner schools at all levels complete required programs and activities. Chapters for each Partner Level can serve as a standalone piece so you don't need to print the entire Planning Guide. For this reason, some material is repeated in each chapter. The chart below shows the chapters you will most likely need based on your Partner Level.

The Workbook and templates are tools that you can use when creating a Student Travel Plan.
