Phase 3: Develop Action Plan

The third phase of STP is to develop a plan of action based on the issues and barriers to active school travel that have been identified in Phase 2. Action items should be realistic and measurable, and it’s important to identify responsibilities and deadlines.
Action Plan Inspiration Guide

The Action Plan Inspiration Guide provides examples and case studies to help the School STP Committee to develop ideas for what to include in the Action Plan for their school. The webpage can also help identify a range of action items from across the 5 E’s (education, encouragement, engineering, enforcement and evaluation).
