Professional Development

All professional development at KIPP School Summit in 2016 was focused on one of three key topic areas: Teaching and Learning, College and Career Support, and Leadership & Management. Within these topics, we offered a variety of courses, curriculum trainings, and sessions for participants to dig in and go more deeply into a selected topic. Additionally, we offered a general interest strand focused on Social Justice and Culturally Relevant Education.

College Presidents Convening

We brought the higher education community together at KIPP School Summit. Senior administrators from 53 colleges, including more than 20 college presidents, met to tackle the unique challenges facing first-generation college goers. United by the same goal of increasing college completion rates, the group came together to identify practices and policies aimed at addressing these challenges and spurring change.
