The Walking School Bus is a project that is designed to increase the number of students who walk to North and West Street Elementary Schools. A Walking School Bus is a group of students who walk to school together under the supervision of an adult, either a parent, neighbor, or volunteer. Currently students who live within .8 miles of the two public elementary schools are considered “walkers” but are typically driven to school. The goal of this project was to research the concept of Walking School Busses and determine if there was sufficient interest and capacity to initiate a program in Geneva.
