At Hatching Results, we know that the work of designing a school counseling program requires an intensive commitment of time and talent and can vary from location to location. Typically, full implementation of a school counseling program aligned with the use of data, evidenced-based practices, and the ASCA National Model takes a minimum of three years. Our Three Year Comprehensive Training package is our most requested plan. By the fourth year, our goal is to establish a professional learning community and “Trainer of Trainers” model to ensure sustainability and to increase readiness for district sustainable leadership. Some of our districts have applied for and received the American School Counselor Association’s RAMP (Recognized ASCA Model Program) recognition.

Based on your districts needs, goals, timeline, current implementation status level, and other factors, Dr. Hatch and her expert team will collaborate to provide the personalized services your district needs and to define a professional development schedule grounded in co-constructed measurable objectives.
