27 Apr Burkholder Middle School recognized for commitment to school counseling

Lyal Burkholder Middle School earned the 2021 Recognized American School Counselor Association (ASCA) Model Program (RAMP) designation for making an exemplary commitment to its school counseling program. This is the second time Burkholder Middle School has been awarded RAMP designation. Burkholder Middle School is the only school in the state of Nevada to receive the designation this year.

“Our school counselors play a vital role in student success and have played an even bigger role this past year,” Clark County School District Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara said. “I am proud of the school counselors at Burkholder Middle School for the recognition — it is well deserved.”

The RAMP designation, awarded for aligning with the criteria in the ASCA National Model, recognizes schools committed to delivering a data-informed school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment. Since the program’s inception, more than 1,100 schools have been designated as RAMP recipients.

The RAMP designation is good for five years, after which time schools must reapply to maintain their RAMP status. This year 26 schools earned Re-RAMP status, three of them for a fourth time.

Richard C. Priest Elementary School and Lucile Bruner Elementary School also hold RAMP designations from previous awards.
