Congratulations to all students, teachers, parents and volunteers who participated in Bike to School Week! Now it’s time to share your story. Please complete this reporting survey by Friday June 14, 2019. Schools completing this survey by this date will receive a Certificate of Participation for Bike to School Week, and will be eligible for other prizes and incentives offered in their respective regions.
Thank you for selecting your school name. In order to proceed, please read the following statement and click “I consent” below.
Bike to School Week 2019 is organized by the Events Subcommittee of the Active and Sustainable School Transportation Regional Hub of Metrolinx, the Regional Transportation Authority of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA). The subcommittee is comprised of staff from Metrolinx and its program Smart Commute, school boards, Public Health units, municipal Transportation Services departments, and non-governmental organizations. CultureLink, an NGO involved with providing cycling programming to schools, has been contracted to support the work of the subcommittee. biketoschoolweek.ca is owned and managed by Cycle Toronto, the NGO coordinating the overall Bike Month campaign in the GTHA.
By submitting this reporting survey, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of the information provided by you in the reporting form (viewable at bikemonth.ca/biketoschoolreports) for the purposes of administering and evaluating the Bike to School Week 2019 campaign, describing the campaign’s impact, and planning future campaigns.
Your school will be automatically entered into two contests. 1) CultureLink will administer a random prize draw in each of the six regions of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (Hamilton, Halton, Peel, York, Toronto and Durham). One elementary and one secondary school will win in each region. Prizes will be gift cards from a sporting goods store. 2) Metrolinx will administer a contest associated with the annual Smart Commute Awards. For the 2019 Smart Commute Awards, the school with the highest reported cycling mode share, within their region, will be selected for recognition. One school will be selected within each region for an award. The award will be sent to the winning school before the end of the year. Metrolinx will recognize publicly the work happening across the region at the school level, without naming schools or individuals.
Data you submit, including your name and contact information, may be available to staff of CultureLink, Metrolinx and your school board, as well as the representative(s) of your municipality or region on the Events Subcommittee. Data about cycling mode share, barriers/facilitators to cycling, campaign events, participation, and outcomes will be shared in aggregated form (without identifying schools, school boards, or survey respondents) with other members of the ASST Regional Hub and with academic researchers. A report based on the aggregated data, alongside data from public sources including social and conventional media, will be available to the general public and will be sent to you at this email address.
Your school can only report once using this form. Please be aware that you must be 18 years of age or older at the time of submitting this form.
Questions about changing the school representative or the collection and use of information should be addressed to Kristin Schwartz, manager of CultureLink’s Bike to School Project at [email protected].
