Since its launch in 2003, the ASCA National Model has been implemented across the nation. States, districts and individual schools are bringing their school counseling programs in line with the ASCA National Model and obtaining Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) status. This presentation is designed around the model’s accountability component. What does accountability mean to school counseling? Most educators concur that accountability is a shared concern and a shared responsibility in which counselors, administrators, teachers and school staff all contribute to the comprehensive structure of school that focuses on curriculum, climate, teaching, and learning. Carolyn Stone will demonstrate an easy approach to implementing an accountable school counseling program to show how school counselors effectively impact student success and can report hard data to show how students are different because they have a school counselor. Data stories will be presented from school counseling programs that change lives by using an accountability system to impact grades, test scores, higher education going rates, course enrollment patterns, and other measurable indicators of student success.
