Many Conroe ISD schools are participating in International Walk to School Month during the month of October.
Organized by the Partnership for a Walkable America, Walk to School Day in the USA began in 1997 as a one-day event aimed at building awareness for the need for walkable communities. In 2000, the event became international when the UK and Canada (both of which had already been promoting walking to school) and the USA joined together for the first International Walk to School Day. Growing interest in participation all over the world led the International Walk to School Committee to shifts its promotion to International Walk to School Month for the entire month of October.
This event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration each October. Students and campuses across Conroe ISD along with thousands of schools across America participate every October.
