If you’re looking for an opportunity to positively impact the lives of students, KIPP is the place for you. At KIPP, every position is critical to the overall KIPP mission and you will be a member of our collaborative Team and Family, a group of people with a shared belief that all children, no matter their background, can go to and through college.
KIPP is a dedicated, results-focused community with high standards for all of our students. Beyond teaching and school leadership, opportunities exist across the KIPP network.
Outside of the classroom opportunities exist in KIPP Schools, such as Director of KIPP Through College, Director of School Operations, and Social Workers. To learn more about individual schools, please visit our School Directory.
KIPP regional organizations provide local support to KIPP schools in the areas of professional development, human resources, business operations, technology and development.
While not all KIPP schools are within regional organizations, KIPP is focusing expansion within the existing regional organizations by adding new middle schools along with Pre-K, elementary and high schools.
In 2000, Doris and Don Fisher, in partnership with Mike Feinberg and Dave Levin, created the KIPP Foundation to grow the KIPP network by recruiting and training outstanding school leaders to open and operate KIPP schools. Since 1994, KIPP has grown from two teachers in a single classroom to more than 3,000 teachers serving 50,000 students in 141 schools across the country. The KIPP Foundation, through its KIPP School Leadership Programs (KSLP), has trained more than 250 KIPP school leaders to open and/or operate locally-managed and locally-governed KIPP schools. Over time, KSLP has evolved to offer additional leadership development programs for those transitioning into other leadership roles within their school or region, such as grade-level chair, dean, assistant principal, successor school leader, chief academic officer, and executive director.
In addition to offering robust professional development for leaders, the KIPP Foundation is responsible for defining and evaluating school and regional performance, assessing the readiness of KIPP regions to expand, and facilitating the exchange of data and effective practices across the KIPP network.
KIPP schools are public charter schools that operate in accordance with a license agreement with the KIPP Foundation. Day-to-day operations are managed by KIPP local charter management organizations that hold the charter. The KIPP Foundation provides general management as well as specific operational support services.
KIPP is committed to equal treatment for all individuals. KIPP does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, disability, age, religion, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin.
