Safe walking routes
The State of Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) requires each school to provide current information regarding safe school walking routes. The District Traffic School Safety Committee, under the direction of the Board of Education, gathers and reviews the current walking routes at each school. Individual School Community Councils (SCC) and principals meet on an annual basis to review and submit a routing plan and recommendations for traffic safety improvements. Problems or suggestions from SCCs, Parents, and school administrators involving school traffic safety should be submitted to the committee for review.
UDOT has prepared a mapping system called Student Neighborhood Access Program or “SNAP”. This planning process will guide the committee in the preparation of a safe walking/biking route to their school, along with a detailed map that is created online. A flyer from UDOT SNAP is being sent to your school via district mail for their contact information. Elementary Schools
The elementary principal and the SCC at each individual school are required to update a SNAP plan annually. The plan must include the following information:
- The school location
- Existing traffic controls (STOP and YIELD signs, signals)
- Location of school crosswalks
- Crossing guard location
- Rail line crossings
- Established School Zones
- The School Routes on the street system within the school boundaries
- Describes the map
- Addresses the destination loading and unloading areas for students riding the school bus, public transit, or private vehicles
- Instruct parents to walk the route with their children
- Outlines areas of concern (i.e. missing or damaged sidewalk locations, areas under construction, hazard locations, busy intersections, etc.)
After approval, the school shall be responsible to send a copy of the map to parents whose children attend the elementary school.
