Building Assets, Reducing Risks (BARR) is a research based model of student support that we are implementing with our 9th grade students in the 2023-24 school year. 9th grade students will be on a team for 2 - 4 of their core classes (Language Arts, Science, Social Studies and/or Math). BARR is a research based model shown to improve academic outcomes and support social emotional learning needs of students particularly as they transition to high school. Fourteen metro area high schools have seen great success with this program.
For the 2023-2024 school year there will be 4 BARR teacher teams. Each team is made up of a representative group of students.
Students are still assigned a counselor based on their last name.
