This is the recording and transcript of the speech that KIPP Foundation CEO Richard Barth gave to 3,000 attendees at KIPP School Summit in Atlanta, GA on July 25, 2016.
We’ve never been more excited about the year to come, which includes many ‘firsts’ for KIPP. New initiatives to learn more from our peers, to share more of what we know, and to adapt in order to better confront the challenges our students face. Read about three here!
A focus on results and a commitment to transparency has been part of KIPP’s culture since our founding. KIPP Foundation CEO, Richard Barth, takes a moment to review and reflect on our latest results in order to learn more about what our students and schools are achieving.
With 2015 drawing to a close, CEO Richard Barth shares some highlights of what we’ve been up to, and his gratitude for all those who helped make it happen.
At the Rales Health Center, a full-service medical clinic located inside KIPP Baltimore’s campus, students can see Dr. Connor, get their prescriptions, and take care of routine medical needs—all without leaving the school building. We sat down with Dr. Connor to learn more about the Rales Health Center, why she’s excited about the partnership, and her number one health tip for parents.
Richard Barth shares exciting news coming out of two KIPP communities. Thanks to recent decisions, even more students and families in Chicago and Nashville will have access to an excellent public education.
KIPP opens our 183rd school with 21 schools opening their doors for the first time this year! In this post, Richard Barth highlights four schools, the communities they are serving, and their founding leaders. Their stories are very different, but they are united by a common goal: to make sure every child has access to an education that opens doors of opportunity.
