Community Engagement

One of KIPP's values is Team and Family. The KIPP Colorado Team and Family encompasses students and their families, our staff, and the entire community we serve. Research shows that schools that engage families find that their students earn higher grades, score higher on tests, develop better social skills, and are more likely to persist to and through college graduation. Additionally, parents are the best advocates for their children, their schools and their community. KIPP Colorado Schools supports parents so that they can support their student's academic and social growth.

KIPP Colorado Family Council

The voices of our families are essential to providing the best educational experience possible. The KIPP Colorado Family Council gives our students' families the opportunity to be involved in the growth and success of KIPP Colorado Schools. The Family Council is a region-wide group of families representing all five of our schools. The Family Council meets monthly to discuss and take action on issues that impact our schools and our communities.
