Theory of Action
KIPP Public Schools Northern California will disrupt the presence and impact of racial inequities within the organization, our practices, and in educational access and outcomes. Our ultimate aim is for empowered alumni to live fulfilling lives. We will achieve this aim by operating joyful, academically excellent schools, and amplify our impact through smart growth and a commitment to operational excellence, together with engaged families and communities.
Our Vision for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Our mission and theory of action describe our belief in the transformative power of education to play a critical role in combating systemic racism and all forms of oppression. We know that we can’t succeed --and that any perceived successes will ring hollow -- without an active and explicit commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. We will hold ourselves accountable to continuous learning and improvement as we work together to implement our vision with courage and humility.
