Additionally, Lincolnwood houses STEP for north side Evanston K-5 students. The Structured Teaching Education Program (STEP) is a self-contained, special education program primarily for students who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder. The program is designed to support student success through the development and strengthening of social skills, academic skills, communication skills, independence and learning stamina across all school settings. The program consists of four classes taught and supported by a certified special education teacher and licensed paraprofessionals. In addition, students in the STEP program may receive related services in the areas of Speech & Language, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Social Work, English Language Learner, and Adapted Physical Education, as determined by the IEP team.

Parents, family members, and visitors should all plan to come through the main entrance of the school, on Colfax Street, for any important information related to their children's day. If a student is tardy, they must also enter and check-in at the main entrance on Colfax Street. For more information on attendance or sick policies, please see the health office website.
