Case Study: Canal Winchester, Ohio

The Village of Canal Winchester, OH, has two elementary schools located near one another on the same campus. Both Indian Trail and Winchester Trail Elementary Schools house more than 800 students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Most of the students are bussed or driven to school because the campus is on a state route with a high volume of traffic. In December 2007, the Ohio Department of Transportation awarded Canal Winchester $7,000 in Safe Routes to School (SRTS) funds to create a School Travel Plan (STP)- the Village of Canal Winchester's first step in creating a safer environment for the students at the two elementary schools.
