KIPP Family Association
The KIPP Family Association at KNE meets monthly and supports family events at the school, celebrations for staff, and volunteer opportunities.
Coffee Chat with Leadership
Families meet monthly with school leadership at the Coffee Chat with Leadership meetings. During these meetings there is no set agenda. This is an organic, open forum where families can provide input on curriculum needs, staffing, after-school programming, etc. All families are invited to attend these meetings.
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.
