The vast majority of KIPP Chicago funding is from the State of Illinois following the same per-pupil formula used to fund traditional neighborhood schools. We’re also a non-profit organization. These two factors require that our teams not in direct service of students and families be small. Our Regional Team, located in the Pilsen neighborhood, is comprised of approximately twenty employees, who provide leadership, development, services, and resources that allow school-based personnel to focus on serving kids and families.
Lead by the Chief Academic Officer, this team provides curricular and instructional leadership for teaching and learning and the academic subjects.
Lead by the Chief Operating Officer, this team manages the school-based operations teams as well as the region’s accounting and finances.
Lead by the Director of KIPP Through College, this team is comprised of the College Access and Support Counselors who support our alumni in college and managed the High School Transition Coordinators at each middle school campus.
Lead by the Vice President of Development, this team is charged with fundraising to support our KIPP Through College program and other programs that lie outside of traditional academic offerings.
Lead by the Chief of Staff, this team collects, analyzes, and presents student data for operational and instructional purposes, as well as manages the technologies infrastructures of the campuses.
Lead by the Direct of Recruitment, this team recruit high-quality teachers and other staff, manages our selection process, and supports school leaders in making hiring decisions.
