Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Being street smart can mean many things. But for some special needs students, it meant learning how to navigate our roads safely.
The students are from C H Decker Elementary School.
On Friday, school police taught them how to properly cross the street on their way to a nearby store.
"We want to teach them how to go to a stop light, what to do to make sure they look, listen and make sure they cross the street safely," said one officer who helped with the event.
At the local Walmart, the children were shown how to properly find what they need and pay for it.
The goal was to help the students learn how to be independent.
Look Out Kids About and Nevada Parents Educating Parents also helped with the event.
