Woodland’s School Counseling Program receives

National Award

The school counseling program at Woodland Elementary was the first school in Greenville County to receive the Recognized ASCA (American School Counselor Association) Model Program (RAMP) designation from the National School Counselor Association. The application process involves aligning the counseling program with national standards and is the culmination of the implementation of a comprehensive school counseling program. Data and information were collected for a year to fulfill the RAMP application requirements. Counselors Anna McWhorter and Elizabeth All say the hard work was well worth the effort. “It helped us to evaluate the program and identify areas for improvement, therefore enhancing the programs efforts toward success for all students. This is not about us, it is about the entire counseling program and how we can best meet the needs of ALL our students. We receive tremendous support from our administration, staff and community. We all work together to make Woodland a great place”. An engraved plaque was presented to the counselors in an awards ceremony at the American School Counselor Association’s annual conference in Philadelphiay.
