With hands-on training, effective coaching, and quality resources, KIPP teachers receive the support they need to create excellent classrooms.
For Aspiring School Leaders
Outstanding schools are built, led, and sustained by empowered leaders. KIPP provides aspiring school leaders with the skills and confidence they need to excel in their role through three programs: Fisher Fellowship, Successor Prep, and Principal in Residence.
For All KIPP Public Schools Staff
Hundreds of talented staff members work outside the classroom to keep KIPP running. Leaders in key roles like operations, technology, and communications have access to year-round professional development opportunities to advance their skills. In addition to formal trainings, the KIPP Foundation and individual regions facilitate learning communities so staff across the country can share knowledge and collaborate.
