STEPS is a decision-making tool to guide schools in selecting appropriate and evidence-based anti-bullying programs and approaches.
STEPS stands for Steps To Examine Programs and approaches in Schools, and it steps schools through each of the key questions they need to ask about an approach for their school.
With STEPS, schools can make sure they select approaches that lead to real results for students and avoid those approaches that don't really make a difference.
The STEPS decision-making framework explores three important questions for schools:
- Does it work? What is the evidence?
- Will it work to achieve our school's goals?
- How will we know it has worked?
