1 SACS No Transportation Zones Update: 2014

2 Goal To align and update SACS “No Transportation Zones” Or NTZ’s

3 Why? Fiscal Responsibility: At a time when many districts are planning to eliminate all transportation services because of budget cuts, SACS is being fiscally proactive and more efficient Fairness: We enforce No Transportation Zones at three of our elementary schools Fitness: Research supports that when parents enable students to walk/ ride a bike to school, they are healthier, calmer and more alert

4 No Transportation Zone Guidelines Elementary: one mile Middle School: 1.5 miles High School: 1.5 miles *Guidelines based upon common practices

5 Current SACS No Transportation Zones HES, WMES and DRES currently have established NTZ’s

6 Deer Ridge

7 Whispering Meadows

8 Haverhill

9 Proposed Future NTZ’s: Summit 1.5 radius Homestead 1.5 radius Both schools will have the same NTZ

10 Summit and Homestead

11 Proposed Future NTZ’s: WMS CES AES

12 WMS does not currently have a NTZ WMS has adjoining paths to and from school Work will be done to refurbish current paths to area subdivisions A NTZ will begin at the beginning of the 2015 school year once the infrastructure is complete Woodside

13 Woodside Projected NTZ:

14 Covington Covington does not currently have a NTZ A sidewalk will be constructed to join existing sidewalks A NTZ will begin at the beginning of the 2015 school year once the infrastructure is complete

15 Covington Projected NTZ:

16 Other SACS Consideration for NTZ Aboite LME

17 Aboite Elementary AES does not currently have a NTZ AES does not currently have adjoining paths to and from school School officials will investigate the possibility of creating an infrastructure to connect paths

18 LME LME does not currently have a NTZ LME is a rural area with one adjoining path to and from school No current infrastructure is in place for a NTZ We will look at LME in the future as the infrastructure changes
