BARR support amidst Covid-19
“Before the kids left school, we made a list of kids who were struggling and we prioritized on how to reach out to them — first by email, then phone, the Zoom conference rooms.”
“BARR is a system that can easily and effectively be virtually translated by schools.”
“Our BARR coordinator has set up virtual team meetings. They will continue to connect, add student names to their list and spreadsheet, and offer one-on-one interventions. They are going to continue to monitor student progress virtually and even offer some virtual team meetings with students or families as needed.”
