American School Counselor Association Names MacArthur Fundamental Intermediate ‘Recognized ASCA Model Program’

The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) has awarded MacArthur Fundamental Intermediate School the title of a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP). 

The RAMP designation recognizes schools that are committed to delivering an exemplary school counseling program.

Honorees are awarded for aligning their program with the criteria in the ASCA National Model, a framework for a data-informed school counseling program.

More than 900 schools have earned the RAMP designation since the program's inception. 

This year’s RAMP honorees have shown their commitment to students and the school counseling profession, said Jill Cook, ASCA executive director. “These schools used data to drive their program development and implementation so all students can achieve success.” 

The MacArthur Fundamental Intermediate School Counseling Department will be honored at a recognition ceremony at ASCA’s annual conference in Las Vegas, NV, on July 13, 2021.
