Student Support and Academic Enrichment Competitive Grant Opportunity for North Dakota Schools

The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (NDDPI), Office of Educational Improvement and Support, invites North Dakota public schools to submit a grant application for participation in Building Assets, Reducing Risks (BARR).


Some things are just better together. As more International Baccalaureate (IB) Schools are implementing the BARR (Building Assets, Reducing Risks) model, we are seeing more evidence of increased success in student growth and academic achievement. Why? Because BARR:

  • Builds positive intentional relationships between teacher and student as well as teacher to teacher in order to truly understand the potential and motivations of every student in a strengths- and team-based way.
  • Drives the right conversations, decisions and interventions using relevant data to ensure that every student has the opportunity to achieve their true potential.
