Parents' Information

Parental Involvement

Parents must participate in their child's STEP or BEST experience. While students are participating in academic enrichment classes, STEP and BEST conduct weekly Parenting Workshops that cover a wide range of topics from college admissions to adolescent health and sexuality. All parents must attend six (6) Parenting Workshops during the academic school year. In addition, parent volunteers are often called upon to assist staff members at STEP or BEST activities and events.


Parents are exclusively responsible for their child's transportation to and from the STEP or BEST Saturday program. Arrangements should be made for your child to arrive in a safe and timely manner to the STEP and BEST Office at 18 Washington Place, mezzanine Level by 9am.
