All project managers are required to gather and submit data on student walking and bicycling participation levels over the course of the project/funding period. See the Evaluation Forms on the Project Development Documents Web page.
The SRTS Data Cover Sheet is also available on the Project Administration Documents Web page, for those awardees who will send the Travel Tally Sheet to the NCSRTS for data entry.
If selected, sufficient baseline data must be collected during the first full school month after the project has been selected to receive Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS) funding.
In addition, applicants are strongly encouraged to evaluate one or more of the following:
- Safety benefits (reduced pedestrian/bike-auto crash rates).
- Parent or child behavioral changes (see Evaluation Forms on Project Development Documents Web page).
- Champions', volunteers, partnerships nurtured (people, groups involved).
- Student health, air quality, congestion, or other potential benefits agencies and organizations.
