The STEP team consults with the leadership of each of STEP's implementation partners to determine needs and objectives. In collaboration with school leadership, STEP experts plan the logistics for the initial year of implementation. The STEP team provides training sessions and continued support to guide educators toward more effective implementation and improved literacy instruction in the classroom. On-site STEP training is available in multiple models to meet the needs of networks and districts and includes: train the trainer, institutes, modeling/coaching and ongoing sessions that support and guide educators in optimal literacy instruction. The team also provides direct support on data analysis, interpretation, and planning.
