According to the executive summary: "The Strategic Plan for the National Partnership was crafted after careful analysis of our unique niche in supporting and leading the overall movement. Our 2011–2015 Strategic Plan prioritizes five strategic focus areas:

  1. Opening Minds through Research and Communications
  2. Changing Policies and Infrastructure
  3. Building Capacity for Leadership
  4. Advancing Social Equity, and
  5. Assuring Sustainability

Goals and indicators are provided for each of the five strategic focus areas. We believe that progress in each of these areas will collectively lead to an overall increase in walking and bicycling to school by 50 percent by 2015, a stabilization in distance to school and improved safety for children. We look forward to working with numerous partners to advance these ambitious goals."
