Safe Routes to School
- Guidelines for Talking to Children About Pedestrian Safety
- Pedestrian Safer Journey – Pedestrian safety education videos and resources designed specifically for kids ages 5-9, 10-14 or 15-18.
- Minnesota Walk! Bike! Fun! Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Curriculum is a two-part curriculum designed specifically for Minnesota’s schools and is structured to meet Minnesota education standards. It helps children ages five to thirteen learn traffic rules and regulations, the potential hazards to traveling, and handling skills needed to bike and walk effectively, appropriately and safely through their community.
In 2010, Dakota County partnered with the Minnesota Department of Health and Independent School District (ISD) 196 to create specific Safe Routes to School plans for each of the 4 public schools in Rosemount. These plans are provided below and seek to increase walking and bicycling to school through the “Five E’s” - Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, Engineering and Evaluation.
