The Houston ISD SuperCyclist Training has been rescheduled for Monday, April 24, 2006. This is a district in-service day, and as such attendance is expected to be very high.
On August 18, 2005, nine-year-old Ruth Young was riding her bicycle to school when she was tragically struck and killed by a school bus a block from Frazier Elementary in Pasadena. Texas Bicycle Coalition quickly responded and, with the support of Superintendent Dr. Abelardo Saavedra and Senator Rodney Ellis (D-Houston), coordinated a SuperCyclist bicycle safety education teacher training for all 207 elementary schools in Houston Independent School District. Unfortunately, the September 30, 2005 training had to be postponed as Houston was evacuated in preparation for Hurricane Rita.
