Recognized Asca Model Program (RAMP) awards

The Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) honors comprehensive school counseling throughout the nation. School counseling programs that receive RAMP recognition show how students are different based on the school counseling program and report improvements in overall student achievement, behavior, and attendance. Many of Hatching Results’ professional development specialists have successfully completed the RAMP process and were recognized by ASCA, and/or are ASCA RAMP Reviewers:

  • Danielle Duarte – RAMP Awardee

  • Julie Hartline – Two-time RAMP Awardee & Lead RAMP Reviewer

  • Nancy Jarman-Dunn – Four-time RAMP Awardee & Lead RAMP Reviewer

  • Whitney Triplett – RAMP Awardee & Lead RAMP Reviewer

Our specialists support schools and districts in RAMP application completion and submission to showcase results of comprehensive school counseling. See the RAMP submission video below from Danielle’s former school, Potter Junior High School. 

Training and Consultation to Support RAMP

Kershaw County, SC Has Its First RAMP School—Congratulations to Mt. Pisgah Elementary School (Derhonda Ross, School Counselor) for earning the first RAMP recognition in Kershaw County, where Hatching Results (mainly Julie Hartline) provided training and consultation for three years. Ms. Ross credits Julie with having “a heart of gold,” stating, “I never would have become a 2017 RAMP recipient without the training and assistance of Julie Hartline. . . After three years of intensive training, I learned how to develop a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program linked to ASCA mindsets and behaviors and offering equitable access to all students.” Way to go Derhonda and Julie!

If you are ever so fortunate as to get the opportunity to work with Julie Hartline, please go for it!!! She’s witty, so knowledgeable, and completely dedicated to helping counselors help students. For three years she trained the counselors in our district—walking us through the ASCA National Model. Because of this training, our school decided to RAMP. She and I worked very closely together. I’d write and she’d critique. When Mt. Pisgah got the letter in January that we could resubmit, Julie was our cheerleader—again assisting me with the writing. Without her assistance, her heart for students, her patience, and her time (very valuable), we would never have received the RAMP award! Thanks, Julie, you’re the best!!!

...Under the Results section I see a list of RAMP Awardees and Reviewers that were trained by Dr. Hatch, and I also am one of them. I attended her RAMP training session, and was a RAMP awardee at Hughes Middle School in Long Beach in 2008, and then I was a RAMP reviewer. I went on to become an ASCA SCOY semi-finalist in 2008. I even was blessed with the opportunity to present at one of her RAMP conferences in Temecula in 2009. As of last year I switched from School Counseling to Assistant Professor at Azusa Pacific University. I couldn’t have done it without her, and I wanted her to know how grateful I am. Thanks again for all that you do.
