For KIPP Teachers and Staff
KIPP School Summit (KSS) is the annual gathering of the KIPP Team and Family to learn and collaborate with our colleagues and partners from across the country. This network-wide event offers interactive training with high-quality instructors across a range of topics.
Because we love learning from each other, in 2018, we will host meet-ups for various roles around the country rather than one large single gathering. In summer of 2019, KIPP School Summit will be hosted in Houston, Texas.
For Classroom Teachers and Leaders
We believe that higher-performing schools are ones where the school leader is relentlessly focused on developing teacher instruction. KIPP teachers receive support to improve their craft and achieve educational excellence through individualized coaching and job-embedded training, instructional toolkits and curriculum implementation plans, and resources to share and collaborate with colleagues across the network.
For Current and Aspiring Leaders
Most leadership development at KIPP takes place on the job. We believe, and 30 years of research confirms, that the best way to develop leaders is 70% on-the-job learning, supported by 20% coaching, feedback, and mentoring and 10% formal training. At the national level, KIPP School Leadership Programs (KSLP) offers multiple cohort-based development programs, including the highly-selective Fisher Fellowship and Miles Family Fellowship.
