12 KIPP’s Five Pillars 1.Giving students more time in school learning 2.Understanding that attending KIPP is a choice and requires a fundamental commitment 3.Giving educators the power to lead and the freedom to innovate 4.Providing students with high expectations for achievement 5. Focusing on results to monitor and sustain high levels of achievement 11

13 99 schools All across the nation. 12

14 13 Serving over 25,000 students

15 84% eligible for federal free or reduced price lunch Focusing on underserved communities 14

16 15 95% KIPP 8 th grade completers graduate from high school; over 85% matriculate to college

17 16 10,000+ KIPP alumni will be in college by 2015, and thousands more matriculating every year thereafter

18 Importantly, KIPP is focused on THROUGH college, not just TO college 17 Our mission To create a respected, influential, and national network of public schools that are successful in helping students from educationally underserved communities develop the knowledge, skills, and character to succeed in college and the competitive world beyond. Our vision One day, all public schools will help children develop the knowledge, skills, character, and habits necessary to achieve their dreams while making the world a better place.

19 18 Getting KIPP alumni “to and through” college; partnership opportunities

20 KIPP recognizes importance of comprehensive approach… 19 Character & self-efficacy Core to KIPP culture Academic rigor Amazing educators, more time, critical thinking focus Institutional match KIPP Through College team advice, counsel Financial literacy FAFSA support, student and parental engagement Social and academic integration Continued contact and visits; KIPPster Connections College knowledge, savvy KTC focus, piloting U of Chicago’s 6to16 curriculum

21 … and recognizes significant opportunities to partner and collaborate with higher ed 20 Why partner? Directly benefit thousands of KIPP alumni who have invested so much and worked so hard By demonstrating what is possible at scale, challenge policymakers, K-12 systems, higher education institutions, and other critical stakeholders improve the educational / attainment outcomes of low- income and minority students beyond the KIPP network

22 Key benefit to higher education institutions: talent pipeline College-going culture that starts at the entry point (5th grade for most, but increasingly at Pre-K or K) Commitment to excellence that binds students, teachers, and parents (leads to parents attending college workshops, completing/renewing FAFSA, attending Parent Weekends, saving for college) Early college exposure that includes classes named for colleges, end of year trips, college tours Diversity within diversity i.e., African-American, Latino, male, geographic and socioeconomic diversity Rigorous academic preparation Character and leadership development as well as focus on academics, music, service, sports, STEM, etc. 21

23 How we envision partnership Collaborative partnership between KIPP and admissions, financial aid, and students supports offices to maximize likelihood of continued persistence and college success Beyond increased understanding and awareness, specific opportunities could include: – Access to summer / bridge programming – Ensuring student awareness of academic and other resources available on campus – Financial aid and grant opportunities – Campus liaison – Work-study for KIPPsters to mentor younger KIPP peers – Two-way feedback on what we can be doing to better prepare and support KIPP alumni 22

24 23 We’re seeking 5-7 pioneering partner colleges and universities to go on a journey of discovery with us to flesh out a partnership model that we believe could tremendously benefit kids and provide a model for K-12 / higher education collaboration
