Posted on 02/09/2024
A celebration is brewing at New Manchester High School and Mount Carmel Elementary School as they recently announced they have earned their Recognized American School Counselor Association Model Programs (RAMP) Certification.

The certification recognizes schools committed to delivering comprehensive, data-informed school counseling programs aligned with the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model Framework.

“We are proud of our NMHS counselors and excited for our students,” expressed New Manchester High School Principal Casey Bethel.

Applying for RAMP helps schools evaluate their school counseling program, discover areas for improvement and enhance the program’s efforts to contribute to student success.

Mount Carmel Elementary has also been recognized as an ASCA National Model Framework, receiving an outstanding total of 59 out of 60 points.

Principal Tenia Boone expressed heartfelt gratitude for all the support throughout the process. “I am so proud of the team’s hard work and commitment to enhance our school,” she said.

The RAMP designation demonstrates to administrators, school boards, families and the community at-large that schools are committed to supporting the mission of the school and district.

To receive this designation, schools must complete an application process that is the culmination of successfully implementing the ASCA National Model Framework, showing evidence of direct and indirect services to students, program planning and improved student outcomes in the school counseling program.

Overall, approximately 1,200 schools have earned the RAMP designation.

The recognitions at NMHS and MCES came as counselors across the district were appreciated for their contributions during National School Counseling Week.
