September 8 - October 30, 2015: Participate in Virginia Student Travel Tally Week (STTW)

Schools across Virginia are encouraged to conduct Student Travel Tallies in classrooms during one week of their choosing in either September or October. To encourage participation, schools conducting tallies for the first time this fall will receive a SRTS banner to hang in their school. Just survey at least 80% of your classrooms and upload the data to, the National Center for Safe Routes to School’s online data clearinghouse. Schools participating for a second or third time will receive STTW decals to decorate their banners. Supporting materials including principal and parent letters, flyers and tally forms are available on our Student Travel Tally Week webpage.
