Safe Routes in Kalkaska: Surveys

Find the Survey for Your School

THE VISION

Kids learning to move and moving to learn. When kids are physically active as part of ordinary life – like going to school or the park or the library or the beach – they inspire their parents, teachers, principals, neighbors to do the same. This is a powerful means to a happy, healthy, strong community.

Norte is working with community partners on identifying programs and infrastructure to support safe routes to school in Kalkaska. We want to help make walking, biking, and rolling to school safer, easier, and more fun. In order to that, we need community input from students and parents.

SURVEYS

The following survey will take 5-8 minutes and will be used to assess community needs and to qualify for Safe Routes to School grants for three schools in Kalkaska (for some reason, high schools don’t qualify for funding….we don’t make the rules).

Please note, the surveys are specific to parents and students.

  • Parents: Make sure to click the correct school or schools for all your children.
  • Students in the 3rd-8th grade: Survey must be taken at school.

Speak up for safer, better connected and more walk/bike/roll friendly schools. Even if you drive to school every day, it is important that we hear from you. Everyone’s experience and perspective is needed.

If you have any questions, send us an email at hello@elgruponorte.org.
