Steering Committee

Safe Routes to School National Partnership Steering Committee

The Safe Routes to School National Partnership is a growing network that is governed by a Steering Committee with national, state, and local perspectives on Safe Routes to School.

The Steering Committee includes up to 21 members and consists of broad representation from groups that are associated with Safe Routes to School programs. Steering Committee seats are held by organizations as opposed to individuals. All Steering Committee Members are required to sign the National Partnership’s Code of Conduct. For more information on the structure, responsibilities and election of the Steering Committee, please see our Governance page.
