Parent Engagement Strategy

Hamilton’s Active School Travel – Parent Engagement Strategy

Would your school like to…

  • Make it easier to walk or wheel to and from school;
  • Reduce the number of vehicles around your school at drop-off and pick-up times;
  • Increase the number of physically active students, families, and staff; and
  • Improve air quality and safety?

If you answered yes, then you need to get involved with Active & Sustainable School Travel (ASST) – Parent Engagement Strategy.
