Teaching becomes more purposeful, direct instruction becomes more effective, and students thrive with expanded support.

BARR helps educators better connect with their students and address the issues that cause students to fail courses, drop out, and/or engage in harmful behavior. The result: significant improvements in course credits earned, grade point averages, and standardized test scores; decreases in failure rates, suspensions, and absenteeism; and improved job satisfaction among teachers.

The model’s eight interconnected strategies are grounded in research about what works in education. They provides a comprehensive structure that helps educators build safe, strong, trusting relationships with their students — and these connections pave the way for every student to engage in learning. The BARR Model works with a school’s existing curriculum and existing staff, and it can be used to attain any specific school goals.
