17 October 2018: The Star Rating for Schools (SR4S) app has made the news in Florida, USA.
SR4S Lead Partner, Safe Kids of Greater Tampa and St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital are currently testing the SR4S app in the Hillsborough Country of Florida to help achieve safer roads around school communities.
Advocates will be using the app around Chamberlain High School for data such as how many sidewalks are around the school, the number of safe access points to cross, the number of lanes there are in the roads around the school, street lighting, parking and more.
If the SR4S app test at Chamberlain High School is successful, it could be used to make recommendations on how to improve roads around dozens of Hillsborough County Schools.
