STEPS is a series of short, online courses on the Learning Zone. These courses are designed to prepare LAUSD employees for emergency situations at the school or other work site. STEPS courses are divided into sections for teachers, administrators, school police officers, and all employees.
STEPS is operated by the LAUSD Office of Emergency Services in School Operations.
The STEPS program is funded through a grant from the Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) program of the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Safe and Drug-free Schools.
