Wheeler Files Resolution to Honor Prairie Ridge High School

State Representative Barbara Wheeler (R-Crystal Lake) has filed House Resolution 1028 to honor the Student Services Department at Prairie Ridge High School. The Student Services Department recently received the Recognized American School Counselor Association (ASCA) Model Program designation, otherwise known as RAMP.

“High school counselor’s play an important role in helping students navigate through challenging academic and emotional situations,” said Wheeler. “The counselors at Prairie Ridge have done a great job implementing a comprehensive program to ensure all students have the resources they need to succeed and are deserving of this recognition by ASCA.”

The Students Services Department created and implemented a curriculum for every grade level that incorporated academics, social and emotional support, and also focused on college and career preparation.

The RAMP designation is awarded to schools that implement an exemplary developmental curriculum for their students and has only been awarded to 600 schools nationwide since 2004. Prairie Ridge will be honored for their achievement this summer at ASCA’s annual conference in New Orleans on July 11.
