Route Planning

  1. EECS Route 2 -102313 Assess routes for safety (sidewalks, crosswalks, etc.) – use the Walk Zone section of the Maine Walking School Bus Program application as an assessment tool
  2. Create routes based on:
    1. Number of volunteers available (see this volunteer scheduling exercise – in PDF, in Word)
    2. Where the students who have registered live; generally plan route for within one block of where those students live
  3. Routes should be one mile or less (30 minutes at a casual pace)
  4. Make sure to walk and time routes before assigning pick-up times for students and volunteers
  5. Map the routes on Google Maps and make available on program web page and to volunteers
