Safe Routes to School Program (SRTS)

About SRTS

Cabrillo Unified School District’s Safe Routes to School Program is part of a countywide initiative to provide education and programs that will enable school children and families to walk, bicycle and carpool more often to school. CUSD began participating in this program during the 2012/2013 school year. All Cabrillo Unified schools are now participating in the program.

The overall goal of the program is “to make San Mateo County a healthier, safer, more sustainable and environmentally sound community with improved air quality and less traffic congestion by reducing the number of school related automobile trips.”

“The San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) is designated to serve as the lead agency for implementation of SRTS projects and programs. The City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County (C/CAG) is the fiscal agent responsible for administering funds for the SRTS Program.”

SRTS Annual Plan

2017/18 Funding Update

CUSD has been notified that we will receive SRTS funding for the 2017-2018 school year, although the funds may not be awarded until January 2018. 

The City/County Association of Governments (C/CAG) partners with the San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) for program delivery through the Safe Routes To School (STRS) grant program. C/CAG has assured Safe Routes to School funding for fiscal years 2017-2018 through 2021-2022.  However, this year SMCOE and C/CAG SRTS are entering a new cycle of funding and SMCOE’s fiscal year starts July 1, and the federal fiscal year starts October 1.  This funding anomaly resulted in the SRTS grant funds being delayed.

2017-2018 SRTS Plan

  • This October six CUSD schools participated in International Walk to School Day (see results below). 
  • Parent Surveys and Student Tallies will be completed in November/December.
  • SRTS continues to work with schools and community partners to provide safer routes to our schools.
