Southwestern Teacher Education Preparation Program
Due to the difficult budget problems facing the college, the district has denied funding for the STEP program. Students may still earn the Certificate of Achievement in Teacher Education Preparation. However, faculty will no longer be available for individual mentoring appointments, and there will no longer be group orientation sessions or workshops. This website will be maintained on a limited basis.
