Walking School Bus Procedures
A Walking School Bus is a group of children walking to school with one or more adults.
A Bike Train is a variation on the walking school bus, in which adults supervise children riding their bikes to school.
IMPORTANT: While Pinellas County Schools encourages parents and community partners to provide Walking School Bus Programs, the District should avoid any action that indicates these programs are District-sponsored or school-sponsored activities. Schools may facilitate parents and community groups connecting with one another to develop a Walking School Bus program. And schools may encourage these community programs to screen their volunteers, but schools should not require or conduct a District screening (Level 2 or Level 1) for this purpose. Parents may volunteer for this community activity, and they may also be PCS registered volunteers, but one should not have anything to do with the other.
To help parents learn how to organize a Walking School Bus Program, please contact All Children’s Hospital. Their Safe Routes to School educators are available to come out to your school and provide walking school bus information/training to parents and community groups.
