STEP Program

The BHS STEP Program is a small, therapeutic program designed to support students 9-12 with social/emotional disabilities who require a substantially separate setting. Students receive academic instruction through a co-taught model that includes a special education teacher and a general education teacher. Students have access to elective courses developed specifically for students with social/emotional disabilities. Inclusion opportunities are provided to the maximum extent possible depending on individual student progress. Students participate in therapeutic support including group and individual counseling, flexible scheduling, and community meetings. The focus of the program is to engage learners and to promote social/emotional resilience both in school and in the community in preparation for post-secondary life.
