Project: Working Towards an Idle-Free District - Our Approach
For the past two years, the Richmond School District has promoted the idle-free message with a number of elementary and secondary schools in the district, with the long-term vision of becoming an idle-free district. Rather than providing all schools with an idle-free kit or mandating that all schools install idle-free signs at their sites, our approach to spreading the idle-free message has been to “go with the goers”. We are grounded in a strong belief that knowledge about the idling issue and an understanding of the factors that support behavioural change are needed along with the provision of materials and resources in order to see a reduction in idling behaviour on school grounds.
