2019-2020 School Year: Learning Specialist (STEP Coordinator) - High School


The STEP Coordinator is the learning specialist tasked with leading support for students who need reasonable adjustments or additional support to meet the learning outcomes in the rigorous academic environment of St. Joseph High School.

The coordinator is responsible for holding STEP meetings (creating and following the ADLA Support Team Education Plan (STEP) Meeting Agenda) for each STEP student annually to determine student strengths; analyze gathered data; prioritize concerns about the student's progress; create strategies for classroom, school, and home; and generate an action plan.

Additionally, the STEP coordinator will hold STEP resource to meet in small groups and work one-on-one with STEP students to assist them in academic, spiritual, and social emotional success. The action plan/STEP plan requires the Team to prioritize the identified support strategies, identify the person who will be responsible for implementing each strategy, and develop a timeline for implementation and evaluation. The Team must record the Support Team Education Plan (STEP) plan and schedule dates for follow-up meetings to monitor student progress and results. The STEP coordinator is not only tasked to provide daily (usually) or weekly contact to provide and implement strategies, but also is responsible for ensuring that all team members are following the STEP plan with fidelity and documentation.

The ideal STEP candidate would be comfortable providing guidance writing a term paper for 12th grade English, giving feedback and construction advice to meet the rubric requirements in a course like Western Civilization, assisting students in understanding Physics’ homework, and helping students with high school mathematics. Additionally, the ideal STEP coordinator would be a practicing Catholic who would promote a Catholic worldview in all dealings with his/her students.
