Douglas County Schools Get Awards for Helping Students | CLASSNOTES

This year, only three schools in Colorado got a special award from the American School Counselor Association for having great counseling programs.

Two of these schools, Franktown Elementary School and Redstone Elementary School, are in the Douglas County School District.

Jill Cook, who leads the American School Counselor Association, said that these schools are really focused on helping their students. She mentioned that they look at information about students to make their programs better and help all kids do well in school.

Getting this award, called the RAMP (Recognized ASCA Model Program) designation, is a big deal, and it encourages other schools to try to do just as well.

The third school that got this award, Prairie View Middle School, is in the Brighton School District.

This is the 20th year that the association has given out these awards, and this time, they picked 138 schools from all over the country. When a school gets this award, they keep it for five years.

In Colorado, at least nine schools have gotten this award before and kept it for five years.
