6 YISD counselors win Lone Star award for outstanding programs

Six counselors in the Ysleta Independent School District (YISD) have earned statewide accolades for their outstanding and comprehensive counseling programs at four schools – Dolphin Terrace, Ramona, and Scotsdale elementary schools, and Indian Ridge Middle School – from the Lone Star State School Counselor Association (LSSSCA).

The six counselors each received 2019 Bronze Awards from the LSSSCA during its annual two-day conference in Frisco, which ended Tuesday. The award-winning counselors are:

Lorena Soto (Dolphin Terrace Elementary)
Cynthia Ibarra (Ramona Elementary)
Leslie Spencer & Pat Tellez (Scotsdale Elementary)
Debbie Walker & Mike Enriquez (Indian Ridge Middle School)

LSSSCA officials selected the six YISD counselors for the Bronze Award after they demonstrated success in their counseling programs in a variety of areas, such as being data-driven; focusing on goal completion; and aligning with then national school counseling model.
Overall, LSSSCA evaluates school counseling programs in 12 areas:

Belief Statement
Vision Statement
Mission Statement
Program Goals
Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success
Annual Agreement
Advisory Council
School Counseling Core Curriculum Action Plan & Lesson Plans
Calendars
School Counseling Core Curriculum Results Report
Small-Group Responsive Services
Closing-the-Gap Results Report
Program Evaluation Reflection
Social Emotional Learning

LSSSCA’s awards system consists of three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. Each award has increasing levels of rigor designed to elevate school counselor programs to national recognition through the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) awards.
