King-Danforth Elementary School and Miller Middle School were both recognized nationally for their school counseling programs, according to a school system news release.
Both schools were designated “model programs” by the American School Counselors Association.
The application process that took up to a year to complete, required the schools to submit its school data, be held accountable, governance by a guidance council and other criteria.The designation is for three years.
“Our counselors worked very hard to obtain this status and the recognition is a mere token of all the dedication they have exemplified during this process,” Miller Middle principal Steve Jones said of the award.
School officials said the school counseling programs will be recognized at a conference next month.
