The San Mateo County Safe Routes to School program hinges on the support of many partners. Support providers provide San Mateo County Schools with education and engineering services. Other partners collaborate to provide a supportive network that assists schools, districts, and the San Mateo County Office of Education with moving forward with the implementation and sustainability of program goals.
The San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE), which collaborates with schools and districts in San Mateo County to coordinate the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program, is releasing a Request for Proposals (RFP). The County Office of Education would like to partner with several organizations that offer SRTS services including, but not limited to walk/bike audits, pedestrian and bicycle safety education, SRTS materials, and SRTS professional development. These partnerships will enable the San Mateo County Office of Education to offer a variety of SRTS resources to the schools and districts it serves. Vendors that are selected will appear on the approved vendor list. Districts and schools that have the SRTS grant may use their funds to contract with vendors on the approved list. Selected vendors will be required to attend the August 30, 2018 San Mateo County Safe Routes to School Summit and Resource Fair. Click HERE to access the vendor RFP. Applications are due on January 17, 2018 by 5:00 pm. A list of questions that have been asked about the RFP (as of 1/4/18) can be found HERE.
