Active transportation to and from school helps children meet their daily physical activity requirements. District policies and state laws may encourage active transportation for children.
About the Study:
Data from all three levels—school, district, and state—were collected during the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 school years. School-specific data was collected using mailed surveys. District data was collected via Internet searches and follow-up to district offices. State data was collected through primary legal research techniques. A total of 632 public elementary schools participated.
