Getting Back to Basics: Building Walkable Schools

Dr. Ruth Steiner from the University of Florida joined us in Knoxville on Dec. 4 and 4, 2019, to speak with community leaders and the public about the keys to choosing and creating school sites for walkability.

Ruth shared research and best practices on school transportation, and led a workshop with school officials where sites for two new school were discussed. Knox County Schools will be building three new schools in the next couple of years. 

Ruth was the 12th speaker we’ve hosted through Active Knox, which is funded through a grant from the Tennessee Department of Health.
