Final 2012 webinar: Share-use agreements with schools and transportation

Safe Routes to School works to increase physical activity through walking and bicycling to school and in daily life. Schools are often the center of community and schools that are accessible by walking and bicycling are especially well positioned for community programs that encourage physical activity.

Shared-use agreements facilitate the ability for an organization to host physical activity programs outside of school hours. In some cases, the school grounds are open for anyone to use the outdoor or indoor facilities. This creates not only daytime but evening and weekend activity at schools increasing the importance of access through walking and bicycling.

This webinar will introduce you to shared-use agreements and discuss the basics of shared-use agreements. Prince George’s County M-NCPPC – Department of Parks & Recreation will discuss their shared-use agreement with Prince George’s County Public Schools. Finally, the link between share-use agreements and the importance of accessing schools via walking and bicycling will be discussed.

You must register in advance!
