Striving toward educational possibilities


STEP has been postponed until the Fall 2014.


An important focus of STEP is encouraging parents to get involved in a significant way in their child's educational goals. Parents of STEP participants are invited to attend a closing session.. Conference registration includes two complimentary tickets to the Saturday parent event. After registering your child for STEP, please reserve your place at the closing session by phone: 616-526-6749.
