Provide professional development for teachers, counselors, and administrators
BARR’s professional development focuses on building strength-based relationships to ensure every student thrives.
BARR educators participate in yearly in-person trainings and coaching and receive unlimited remote support throughout the school year focused on the importance of building student-teacher relationships and using relationships to enhance achievement.
In-person training topics include BARR model implementation, promoting equity, reducing substance abuse, increasing meeting effectiveness and addressing trauma. These trainings begin prior to implementation and continue with daily, weekly, and monthly team meetings and coaching.
I liked the experience and expertise of the BARR presenters. It was the most effective training I’ve had in 20 years and a clear and concise model that will help change our campus.
