Corvallis Earns RAMP Designation!

Corvallis Middle School earned Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) designation from the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), the fourth Norwalk-La Mirada USD school to achieve the honor.


The RAMP designation recognizes schools that are committed to delivering an exemplary school counseling program. Honorees are awarded for aligning their program with the criteria in the ASCA National Model, a framework for a data-informed school counseling program.


“This is an honor for our school and district. It has been a great effort from district leadership, school administration, teachers and staff; they have supported the goals set by our counseling team,” said Erika Vesper, Corvallis Middle School counselor. “It’s truly been a collaborative effort by our counseling team as we worked together and supported each other to meet the needs of our students and families.”


Since the program’s inception, more than 900 schools earned the RAMP designation. Research findings indicate fully implemented school counseling programs are associated with a range of positive student educational and behavioral outcomes. Corvallis joins Norwalk High School, John Glenn High School, and Southeast Academy as RAMP designees in the District.


“We are grateful to have a counseling team that is data-driven and motivated to support our students every day, as well as, a team of teachers that understand the importance of socio-emotional support for our students,” said Corvallis Principal Dr. Nancy Ruvalcaba.


Corvallis will be honored at a recognition ceremony at the ASCA’s annual conference in Atlanta, Georgia, on July 17, 2023.
