Way to Be!

Safety School Traffic Safety

Last year, we had a representative from the Way to Be! program present to our group. The Alberta Traffic Safety Fund provided a grant to develop this program which involved the following organizations:

  • Safe & Caring Schools & Communities
  • AMA School Safety Patrol
  • SHAPE (Safe, Healthy, Active People Everywhere)
  • Office of Traffic Safety (Province of Alberta)
  • Alberta School Councils Association
  • City of Edmonton Transportation Services
  • RCMP
  • James Gibbons School, Edmonton
  • St. Pius X School, Edmonton
  • Johnny Bright School, Edmonton

The Way to Be! program focuses on 10 common traffic troubles:

  • Unsafe Role Modeling
  • No Seatbelts
  • Parking Lot
  • Congestion
  • Walking Between Buses
  • Visibility
  • Unsafe Drop Off
  • Idling
  • Jaywalking
  • Distracted Driving
  • Parking by the Crosswalk
  • Disrespectful Behaviour

Developed by Alberta teachers and linked to the Alberta curriculum, there are lesson plans, resources and a Facilitator Guide. It has checklists and surveys and extends beyond the school so that students can involve their parents as well.

It focuses on 6 Way to Be! messages

  • Be Smart
  • Be Safe
  • Be Seen
  • Be Sure
  • Be An Example
  • Be Respectful
