Walking School Bus Leaders

We’re looking for Walking School Bus volunteers!

Centennial Families, you can help us test a fun way to travel to school in Richfield! This spring, try walking to school with your children and other families in your neighborhood by leading a Walking School Bus.

What is a Walking School Bus?

Like a regular yellow school bus, a Walking School Bus brings students from the same neighborhood to or from school as a group. Instead of driving, though, kids get a little bit of fresh air, exercise and extra time with their families. A Walking School Bus is led by a school-approved adult, typically a school staff member or parent/caregiver volunteer.

What the Walking School Bus Program Includes:

  • $200 stipend for your participation and insights
  • Street safety training and supplies
  • Extra time to spend with kids

Expectations:

Volunteers will be asked to:

  • Confirm you are a parent or caregiver of a current Centennial student
  • Pass a background check (no cost to you)
  • Participate in a 30-45-minute training session
  • Collaborate with at least one co-leader, who will be a Centennial staff member or another parent from your neighborhood
  • Co-lead a Walking School Bus 12 times before the end of the school year
  • Communicate with Centennial staff and other parents as necessary
  • Answer two short questionnaires, one at the beginning and one end of the program
  • Documentation of your Walking School Buses trips

How To Apply:

Contact Jackie or Will and either one of them will be able to answer your questions and help you get started with the program!
