STEP Leadership Team RequirementsThe Basics
To be considered a STEP Leader, you must be able to commit to these requirements:

MG or STEP Officers will provide a call number to join, you will be responsible to share the information with your teacher and potentially the MG participants at your school.
  • Leader Evaluation Form – Complete an end of year STEP Leader evaluation form. We want to know how to develop the program going forward and you opinion and comments matter!
