KIPP Together 2018

November 15, 2018
Since our founding, KIPP Chicago has held collaboration and partnership as central values to realizing our commitment to the students and communities in which we operate. Our efforts to build a commitment of leadership across all stakeholder groups has resulted in ever improving academic performance of KIPP students while strengthening families and building community. It is nothing short of remarkable what a diverse group of people can accomplish together. Parents and teachers, charter public schools and district-run schools, volunteers and donors have accomplished much more together than what is possible by any single group alone. We have harnessed the power of partnership in service of the individual student, effecting true change.

For 15 years KIPP Chicago has worked relentlessly to provide our students on the South and West Sides the quality, high quality, rigorous, college preparatory schools they deserve. We are beyond grateful for our dedicated team, and recognize that we could not accomplish this on our own.
On November 15th we will come together to acknowledge the students, teachers, staff volunteers, funders, and civic leaders who have helped make our growth and impact possible. KIPP Together is both a look back and realization of what we have accomplished, and a launching pad for our next chapter as we continue to support the whole child and build a stronger Chicago.
At KIPP Together we honor team and family that embody support and bringing Chicagoans together to best work with our students and families. We recognize individuals and organizations that work with our students, create space for innovation, make lasting connections with our community.
