The section is responsible for reviewing and responding to pedestrian and traffic related concerns that affect all public, charter, private and parochial K-12 schools in Phoenix.   

The section works directly with the Police,​ NSD, Fire, Parks and other city departments including parents and residents to address concerns and ensure student safety.
