Gold Star School Counseling
What does it mean to be a Gold Star School in Indiana?
Gold Star Schools have demonstrated that they have developed a comprehensive and accountable school counseling and guidance program, aligned to Indiana School Counselor Standards, as well as national (ASCA) standards. Participating schools and school counseling programs have implemented a plan that includes the establishment of a program vision and mission, data-based accountability, standards-driven student guidance activities, counseling and advocacy, program management, the alignment of resources and an annual improvement plan. With the alignment of Gold Star to the Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP), recipients are eligible to apply for RAMP without having to meet additional requirements (other than the RAMP application fee).
284 schools have received the Gold Star Award since its inception in 2004 and of these, many have also gone on to be recognized by the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) with its highest, national award of Recognized ASCA Model Programs (RAMP).
