Conduct risk review meetings
Cohort teacher teams identify the most at-risk students and move them into a structured Risk Review process that engages the community to determine the most effective response.
This team includes the school’s BARR coordinator, a school administrator, a school social worker/counselor, and other professionals as needed. They are trained to use this process to identify and execute interventions to get essential external support for these students.
Moreover, because the highest-risk students are getting additional support, the cohort teachers have more time for their students who need support but are not in crisis.
I was on a teacher team for 11 years before BARR, and I think what was really missing was risk review. We spent 80% of our time on risk review kids and never really made progress.
