I spent most of my "free" time the last 4 days reviewing RAMP applications. My school Re-RAMPed last year and all schools who RAMP are offered the opportunity to have one counselor be a reviewer the following year. I was happy for the opportunity to try on the perspective of the reviewer rather than the counselor whose application is being reviewed. I was pleased I got a chance to review both schools that are attempting to Re-RAMP and those submitting for the first time. I also got to review applications from all 3 levels. You can't review any submissions your own state to make it less likely you would know the applicants. The applications are reviewed by 3 reviewers then the reviews go to a lead reviewer who oversees two teams. It is a very labor intensive process of volunteers. I do believe the RAMP process has greatly contributed to making school counseling programs better. My district now has 4 schools who have successfully RAMPed. I am hoping after serving as a reviewer, I will be in a better position to help other counselors in my district who want to go for RAMP.
