Calling all NJ School Counselors interested in attaining national recognition as a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) for their school counseling programs. NJ currently has only one school with the national RAMP designation, and I am hoping to change that. Any NJ school counselors interested in getting RAMP'd up, I am starting an online monthly chat starting on Monday, December 1st at 4:00 p.m. The Google Hangout will run for approximately one hour, and will focus on a particular topic(s) focused towards helping you achieve RAMP status. If you are interested in this monthly chat, please email me at email@example.com. Looking forward to collaborating with all those interested in raising their program to a new level!
