BARR gives educators the tools to work together to better understand and build on students’ strengths, proactively address the non-academic reasons why they may fall behind in school and identify what they need to thrive within and outside the classroom.

The BARR model reflects the conviction that all students can excel regardless of race, zip code, or family income when they are provided with the right supports.

Making sure that each and every student across the state, and country reaches their highest potential is our Due North. Things that seemed impossible a year ago are not. Equity demands that we prioritize relationships to nurture a unified and personalized culture of support and success for every student.
