RSC Program Standards

Standards and rubric items are available for each step of the RSC process and each component of the RSC Strategic Plan. Schools that meet these standards have demonstrated that they have 1) engaged in a rigorous process to redesign their school counseling program involving a series of discussions with various stakeholder groups located in the school and community, and 2) created a sound, vision-based and data-driven strategic plan for their school counseling program that has been designed to lead to improvements in academic achievement.

The RSC standards include the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) criteria for the Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) award, and the criteria for the Indiana Gold Star School Counseling Award.
