If there are multiple applications from a given community how do you decide which one will move forward?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
00:40:11 ngooding: Can school boards partner with more than 1 municipality to submit multiple applications?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
00:42:20 robb: Seems like a School Board can be a partner with any lower tier or single tier Municipality in which they have schools
David Laing

How are you defining school travel planning?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
00:50:30 GALLANT: I understand that classroom counts are required as part of the evaluation. Are parent surveys also a requirement

Would STP programs for highschool/secondary school be eligible for this funding?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
00:53:39 nroffel: Can you please expand on the 'matched funds' requirement? How would we quantify in-kind matched funds? Can we use funds our organization already has or do they need to be raised specifically for this program?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
00:56:07 kcoumoundouros: Is this powerpoint availavle?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
00:56:16 marlene.campsall: Will these slides be made available...the ones supporting the specifics of the application?

Yes we will make the slides available
Unknown Speaker
00:00
00:58:00 ngooding: do administration costs include the salary for a STP facilitator or does it come from somewhere else?

00:00
01:02:52 Gardiner: What are considered Administration Costs?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:03:36 vankeste: If a submission includes a variety of projects within one overarching application, is it possible that you will be funded for some items and not others (therefore, receiving a segment of the applied for funding), or would it be all or nothing?
Audrey Birenbaum
01:04:31
Can a Health Unit apply on its own with letters of support from the School Boards?

Can activities look at encouraging bused students to take the bus rather than being driven in as a way to reduce congestion at the school and make the school area safer for students who live in the walk zone?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:06:43 SMDHU: Can two different school boards apply for funding within one municipality?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:08:38 Gardiner: Concern that "Track Record of Engagement" favours communities that have existing initiatives. However, it is the communities that do not have existing initiatives that may be able to make the largest impact to active school travel. Any comments on this concern?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:08:48 caroline: I saw that grant recipients are expected to send a representative to the Ontario Active School Travel Summit and that bursaries are available from GCC for one representative. Are these bursaries external to the application? If we want to send multiple representatives, can we include $ for sending additional representatives in our Ontario Active School Travel Fund budget?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:09:02 Vicky.Kyriaco: what happens if the local ethics and research committee won't allow in class hands-up survey?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:10:08 SMDHU: are there any stipulations for the capital costs (other than not to be included as a matched fund contribution)?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:10:31 wilkerka: Can teacher release time be a funded activity?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:11:43 lalanip: I agree with the above. Our EPI dept states it the Hands UP Survey is not anonymous and not accurate because of group mentality. Peer pressure to vote a certain way
Audrey Birenbaum
01:12:55
Round 2 funding application begins in Fall 2018 what is the implementation period for round 2?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:16:59 Gardiner: Will GCC provide data collection tools and central repository to communities? Will communities be responsible for the costs associated with data colleciton/database?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:17:42 GALLANT: Will the provincial resource centre be working on promotions we can use such as bike to work week? I know the GTHA has a combined website for schools to sign up for this promotion. Might this become available provincially?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:21:43 RMI: Can the grant be used by a municipality to fund the salary of a STP.
David Laing
01:23:02
Could minimum bussing distance standards be included as part of the policy review?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:23:28 Vicky.Kyriaco: a concern is that once this "additional" funding dries up, the school boards will need to continue funding whatever has been implemented out of their own budgets. What is the Ministry or GCC's plan to maintain momentum after this first fudning push?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:24:51 billingl: Will funding be available in subsequent years?
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:26:33 Vicky.Kyriaco: right, that's what I meant! :)
Unknown Speaker
