School Access & Safety

School Access & Safety

Safety and security in our schools is paramount for safe and healthy communities.  But the safety of our children doesn’t start at the door to the school. Neel-Schaffer engineers and planners have significant expertise in Safe Routes to Schools programs, having completed studies and design projects on hundreds of schools.  Our work to increase safe access to schools by allowing children to walk or ride their bikes has made a significant impact in our communities. We have assisted in obtaining funding and administering grant programs for many of our clients.
