Safe Routes to School Program 

In an effort to promote awareness throughout the school year, Clark County has an ongoing partnership with the Clark County School District (CCSD) and other local jurisdictions on a community-wide Safe Routes to School Program. Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a national program that encourages children to walk and bicycle to and from school by implementing the "5 E's" - Education, Encouragement, Engineering, Enforcement and Evaluation to foster safer environments for school commutes.

The Department of Public Works maintains an inventory of school-related traffic control devices within a two-mile walking radius of elementary and middle schools located within unincorporated Clark County jurisdiction. This data is displayed on a map exhibit for each school zone area. Families can use the information to determine a safe route for their children to follow. SRTS map exhibits are provided to CCSD for distribution and are also available for viewing/download from our website.
