About the Smart Moves and Kids on the Move curricula

The Smart Moves and Kids on the Move curricula are no longer used in our programs or updated by our staff. They are available for download here as a resource.

In addition, TriMet, the Oregon Department of Transportation, the Portland Bureau of Transportation, and the Oregon Department of Education contributed materials and representatives to the final product.
