“RAMP” Counseling Programs at North Fayette and Burch Elementary

The school counseling programs at North Fayette and Robert J. Burch Elementary schools are “ramped” up just in time for National School Counseling Week February 7-11.

Both schools have been notified that they have received the Recognized American School Counselor Association Model Program (RAMP) designation, certifying thattheir school counseling programs exemplify the characteristics that facilitate student success.

The RAMP designation, awarded to schools that align with the criteria set in the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model, recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment.
More than 350 schools nationwide have received the designation since the program’s inception.

The application process is involved and takes a significant amount of time to complete being that it must cover an entire school year. RAMP applications are reviewed once a year by a panel of school counseling professionals.

The designation is valid for three years. At the end of three years, schools can apply again to continue to be designated a RAMP school.

North Fayette and Robert J. Burch will receive a plaque of recognition during a special ceremony at the ASCA annual conference in Seattle, Washington on June 27.
