Driving Tips Around Schools: Keeping Children Safe
Parents and caregivers who drive on campus and in neighborhoods near school can plan an important role in enhancing safety near schools by following safe driving practices. At arrival and dismissal times, drivers are often in a hurry and distracted which can lead to unsafe conditions for students and others walking, bicycling and driving in the area.
Drivers should always:
- Slow down and obey all traffic laws and speed limits, both in school zones and in neighborhoods surrounding the school.
- Comply with local school drop-off and pick-up procedures for the safety of all children accessing the school.
- Avoid double parking or stopping on crosswalks to let children out of the car. Double parking will block visibility for other children and other motorists. Visibility is further reduced during the rain and fog seasons when condensation forms on car windows.
- Avoid loading or unloading children at locations across the street from the school. This forces youngsters to unnecessarily cross busy streets—often mid-block rather than at a crosswalk.
- Prepare to stop for a school bus when overhead yellow lights are flashing. Drive with caution when you see yellow hazard warning lights are flashing on a moving or stopped bus.
- Stop for a school bus with its red overhead lights flashing, regardless of the direction from which the driver is approaching. Drivers must not proceed until the school bus resumes motion and the red lights stop flashing, or until signaled by the school bus driver to proceed.
- Watch for children walking or bicycling (both on the road and the sidewalk) in areas near a school.
- Watch for children playing and gathering near bus stops. Watch for children arriving late for the bus, who may dart into the street without looking for traffic.
- Watch for children walking or biking to school when backing up (out of a driveway or leaving a garage).

WestEd Center for Prevention and Early Intervention (CPEI) Survey
The Central Unified School District (CUSD) contracted with the WestEd Center for Prevention and Early Intervention (CPEI) to conduct a review of the district’s special education programs and services to identify strengths and provide recommendations for any areas of improvement. WestEd staff are conducting a comprehensive data gathering process and developing a final report with recommendations for improvement.
Feedback from parents of students who receive special education service is an important part of the process of evaluating any special education program. Please take the time to complete one survey for each child you have who is receiving special education services in CUSD. We need your input to better understand the strengths of the CUSD special education program and areas where the division needs to make improvements.
All of your responses will be kept confidential. Survey responses are returned directly to WestEd. The CUSD staff will not see any individual responses or raw survey data. Your responses will be used specifically for this research project and be used for the purposes of evaluating the special education programs and services in CUSD.
The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Thanks for your input!
