Statewide SRTS Forum is Great Success!

Thank you to all who participated in the first Statewide SRTS Forum.  Over 100 participants and presenters from across the state attended the forum on June 6 at the Decatur High School.  We hear some great comments about the forum and hope to see you at the next one.

As a teacher I am eager to take the pedestrian safety curriculum back to  my school and implement it.  My school parent coordinator attended the attended the "Spice Up Your SRTS Program and Events session and we have already talked about many ideas for the next school year.

Sparked even greater enthusiasm for our school's program.

This was great! Loved all the variety of organizations involved and the sessions were informative. Also great networking and sharing of ideas. Appreciative of the time and effort of your staff to make this a success.
