At KIPP Texas being connected to our students’ families is important. Your KIPPster’s school will reach out to the email or phone number you have provided with specific information about how they will communicate with you throughout the year. KIPP Texas will use the text messaging platform, School Messenger. To participate in this free service, simply sign up for alerts. Some schools also use email newsletters, or apps such as “Flyer Connect”, and other methods to communicate regularly. Please contact your school if you need to update your email or phone number so that we can ensure you receive all family communications.
We want our KIPPsters to feel and look their best! It is KIPP’s policy that all students wear the appropriate uniform based on their school’s requirements.
Please review the 2021-2022 school year KIPP Texas Public Schools Student and Family Handbook. Inside you will find information regarding student code of conduct, student/parent rights and responsibilities, school policies, and much more.
KIPP Texas is committed to partnering with parents to support the healthy mental, emotional, and behavioral development of its students. Our school-based mental health service team can provide support to you and your child this school year. This team consists of licensed mental health professionals who provide various support to the KIPP school community. These supports include: counseling services, responsive services, parent education, program development, teacher consultation, guidance lessons, community referrals, and crisis management.
If you are concerned about your child’s mental health, please access the following resources or contact the school for more information :

Research shows that if students feel positive, they perform better academically. If they like school more, they perform better.
After a year of challenges and changes, KIPP Texas is committed to ensuring that students feel welcome, safe and connected to their teachers and classmates as they return to the classroom. We look forward to working collaboratively with families to provide academically excellent instruction that focuses on the individual success and achievement of every student.
