High School Representatives for School Year 2019-20
Cupertino's Safe Routes to School Program has closed the application period for students who would like to be a high school representative to our Working Group.
Thank you to all the passionate students who applied! We received 18 applications with an almost equal distribution of applicants from Cupertino, Homestead and Monta Vista high schools. The Safe Routes team is working on reviewing all applications. Two students will be selected per school. Selected applicants will join our monthly working group where they will share the student perspective on what is needed to make it safe for students to get to and from school actively.
By mid-July, we will notify all applicants whether or not they have been selected to join our working group.
High School Street Light Banner Contest
Cupertino Safe Routes to School has closed its High School Street Light Banners Design Contest. We received 12 submissions and look forward to announcing the winning designs this summer. Stay tuned!
The winning banner designs will be placed on street lights along De Anza Boulevard, Stevens Creek Boulevard, and Stelling Road for our entire community to appreciate. This is an effort focused on bringing community art to public spaces which encourages and promotes alternative transportation use throughout the City.
The City of Cupertino is committed to safeguarding community members of all ages as they navigate our diverse network of bikeways, roadways, and walkways. To ensure this goal is achieved, your City is actively working to expand beyond its traditional infrastructure and enforcement approach to traffic safety. This approach has led to the creation of our Safe Routes 2 School program, a program that brings together various stakeholders in an effort to address student safety throughout the City.
