Safety-based Prioritization of Schools for Safe Routes to School Infrastructure Projects: A Process for Transportation Professionals (National Center for Safe Routes to School, 2012)

This guide describes a straightforward way to identify the schools and specific locations that have the greatest need for pedestrian infrastructure improvements. First, it helps readers prioritize schools – identifying the schools with the greatest need and the greatest potential for improvement. Then, it offers a way to conduct field reviews of the highest-priority schools to further identify conditions and infrastructure needs. The accompanying Excel worksheet provides a place to track and document information gathered about each school and its relative priority for pedestrian improvements.
