Walking School Bus comes to KC

Shawnee, KS, in the Kansas City metro area is planning to implement the "walking school bus" idea:
The wheels on the bus might not be going round and round anymore.

In fact, there might not be wheels at all for some Shawnee pupils.

On Monday, the Shawnee City Council directed city staff to apply for state funding to implement a “walking school bus” initiative in two elementary schools for the 2007-08 school year.

A walking school bus essentially is a group of children walking together to school with one or more adults leading them along a designated safe route.

As far as the city staff can tell, Shawnee would be the first in Kansas to implement such a program.
