Kemp and Sope Creek elementary schools will receive the Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) designation during a special ceremony this summer at the American School Counselor Association annual conference in Orlando, Florida.
The RAMP designation, awarded to schools whose counseling programs align with the criteria set in the ASCA National Model, recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and creating an exemplary educational environment. RAMP applications are reviewed once a year by a panel of school counseling professionals. For more information on the program, visit www.ascanationalmodel.org/ramp. More than 400 schools nationwide have received the RAMP designation since the program’s inception, including 14 Cobb County schools.
