KIPP LA

Los Angeles, California

 

This progressive college-prep public charter school is turning heads and cranking out scholars in the face of declining trends in urban education.


A regional network of free, open-enrollment, college-preparatory public charter schools, KIPP LA's mission is to prepare educationally underserved students for success in school and the world beyond. Part of the nationally-renowned Knowledge Is Power Program (KIPP), KIPP LA currently takes the form of three schools serving elementary and middle school students in East and South Los Angeles. An aggressive plan of growth brought KIPP LA to Innersync, for this non-traditional school system identified online communications as key to building enrollment, faculty and staff, and financial support.

With a reputation for bucking the trend of failure common to many urban school districts, KIPP's results for academic achievement rival those of exclusive private schools. Part of the KIPP process and key to success is to surround the student with a concentrated team effort – a team effort that feeds on a program of exceptional educational methods and content. Innersync created an overarching web site with design templates that afford the flexibility for school staff to manage the pages themselves without the need for technical expertise. The main site links to individual sites for the three separate schools operating in Southern California. Central to KIPP LA's content development is the use of Innersync's Campusuite web management for schools, which puts the power of creating and maintaining the respective sites' content in the hands of the faculty, staff and extended KIPP community.
