A School Safety Program for Special Needs Youth
For more than 10 years, City employees in the Traffic Engineering Division have taught our community’s special needs youth the importance of road signs and how to safely abide by them, as well as why it’s important not to vandalize signs. The FREE, two-hour lesson generally covers warning and directional sign basics and sends students home with goodies to help them remember what they learned during their visit. Throughout the session, one of the key messages shared is the need to always “practice safety.” Signs for Life strives to engage students in these important safety lessons by demonstrating how City signs are made, soliciting questions and giving students a chance to participate hands-on.
