Family Engagement

KIPP Family Association

The KIPP Family Association at KNDLA meets monthly and supports family events at the school, celebrations for staff, and volunteer opportunities.

Collaborative School Committee (CSC)

Parent and staff committee members are elected by their school to participate in quarterly meetings to discuss the school’s priorities, progress, and practices in order to ensure they are inclusive of family, student, and staff voices. School leaders make decisions about their school with input from their CSC.

Clubs & Activities

KNDLA club offerings change on a yearly basis due to what is in demand. We also pride ourselves on including student voice in the clubs we offer. Please reach out to KNDLA’s main office for more info!
