STEP Program and 18-22 Transition to Adult Life Program

Specialized Transition to Employment Pathway Program
The STEP program at Delcastle Technical High School is designed for students who are eligible to participate in the Delaware Alternate Assessment. Most students in this program are working toward a Diploma of Alternate Achievement Standards. The academic component of the program includes instruction in English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. The academic program is designed to reflect individual student needs and expectations in communication skills, self-determination, social skills and self-advocacy. The program promotes life skills, independence and vocational skills that enable students to successfully transition into their post-secondary goals. Students also have opportunities to generalize their learning within the neighboring community by means of our Community Based Instruction program. The STEP Program focuses heavily on employability skills. All students participate daily in vocational training in the Production and Imagining career area, which models a  real-life work setting. This career program offers students opportunities to learn and apply the principles of employability skills that are common throughout all the vocational programs offered in our district.
