The City of Seattle School Traffic Safety Committee was created by Ordinance 104344 in 1975 and codified in SMC 3.80 to bring together Seattle Public Schools, the City, and parents to improve safe routes to school. This volunteer board of 11 members represents Seattle Public Schools (SPS), Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), Seattle Police Department (SPD), King County Metro, pedestrian advocates, bicycle advocates, and parents.

What We Do: The committee recommends new school crosswalk locations, crossing guard assignments, criteria for placement of crossing guards, and traffic circulation plans for schools.

Meetings: Open to the public and are generally held 8:30 - 10:30 AM the second Friday of every month at the school district administrative building, John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence (2445 3rd Ave S).
