STEP is an acronym for Supportive Teams for Educational Progress.
The main goal of STEP is to provide specialized behavioral interventions in such a manner that students are able to expand their social repertoire, develop emotional stability and behavioral control while meeting their academic and social needs.
STEP offers a wide spectrum of services ranging from behavioral observation and teacher consultation to creation of full behavior support plans. These services are created by the coordinators of the program and implemented by specially trained paraprofessionals.
The Planning Room is a place for students to go to for behavior intervention. It is a quiet space for students to do work, problem-solve behavior conflict, and develop a plan to re-enter the classroom. The Planning Room is staffed by a skilled Paraeducator who is also a Registered Behavior Technician.
