    COUNSELORS RECEIVE AWARD

    •  

      The LONE STAR STATE SCHOOL COUNSELOR ASSOCIATION (LSSSCA) State Award is a recognition for school counseling programs that support the American School Counseling Association (ASCA). The goal for this award is to foster excellence in school counseling in the state of Texas and to prepare school counselors to achieve the national Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) award.

       

      The LSSSCA State Award is based on ASCA’s four components, which include Foundation, Program Management, Delivery, and Accountability. Supporting these components are the ASCA Themes that serve to support the role of the school counselor. These themes include Leadership, Advocacy, Collaboration, and Systemic Change. Social Emotional Learning is also a vital part of the Lone Star Award System and has been included as a valuable measurement of success for students.
