Safe Routes to School Plan

The Village of DeForest, Village of Windsor and DeForest Area School District in 2011 adopted a Safe Routes to School Plan, following receipt of a State grant for that purpose. The plan is complete and available by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.

The goal of Safe Routes to School is to increase walking and biking to school. The planning process included safety audits at several schools. As you browse the plan you will find school specific and community wide recommendations aimed at increasing walking and biking to school. Implementation of the plan has and will take place on several fronts. Some recommendations are best suited to be advanced at the individual school level while others are best to executed at the community level.
