The Beaverton School District Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Education Program began 2020. 

Beaverton SRTS instructors will provide all Kindergarten through 5th grade students with 45-minute lessons to be taught during PE classes. SRTS instructors will provide all needed instruction and materials. In order to equitably deliver instruction to all elementary schools, we will be teaching schools on a 3-year rotation. 

Why teach pedestrian and bicycle safety?

All children, regardless of their preferred mode of travel to school, will at some time need to travel in their neighborhoods. When children walk or ride on the same streets as other road users, research tells us that children perceive traffic differently than adults.

  • Children have difficulty judging speed and distance.
  • Young children have underdeveloped peripheral vision.
  • Children are likely to believe that cars can stop instantly, and that if they can see the car, the driver can see them.

Through ongoing skill development and practice, children can significantly reduce the likelihood of injury-causing crashes. To see the grade based lessons please download a copy of the lesson below, or if you nee an accessible document please contact us.
