The foundation of Utah's Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program is to assist schools with their legal responsibility to create a SNAP Plan, which consists of a student map and a text description showing the safest walking and biking routes to school. Utah law requires every elementary, middle and junior high school to develop and distribute a SNAP Plan.
The process of creating a SNAP Plan is a cooperative effort between:
- School administrators/officials
- School community councils
- Local municipalities
- Local law enforcement agencies
Create your SNAP Plan using SNAP's free resources:
SNAP Mapping Software: A Web-based mapping program that provides tools to make a concise and easy-to-read SNAP Map and accompanying text description. In response to feedback from principals across the state, SNAP has launched a new version of the SNAP for Schools mapping software to help you update and maintain your SNAP Plan.
SNAP for Schools mapping software features:
- Convenience: Web-based software allows use on any PC/Mac; ability to share map online with parents
- Accuracy: Interfaces with Google Maps
- Ease of Use: Operates simply for users of any skill level
