Grand Rapids School District awarded Safe Routes to School grant

ST. PAUL, MN– The Grand Rapids School District is one of six public school districts in Minnesota to be awarded with funding to help promote safer traveling to school.

In a statement from MnDOT, the goal of the grant is to help promote safe walking and bicycling education in schools.

The funding will allow the school districts to work with MnDOT to launch a three-year program to support the Safe Routes to School program, and the districts can use the money to hire staff and implement solutions and strategies to fit what the school needs.

Local coordinators will create engagement events, train crossing guards and student patrols, and help increase walking and bicycling education in schools.

The other schools that received the grant includes:

  • Saint Paul Public Schools
  • South Saint Paul Public Schools
  • New Ulm Public Schools
  • Richfield Public Schools
  • Rochester Public Schools
