KIPP LA Schools is a non-profit organization that operates high-performing elementary and middle public charter schools in South and East Los Angeles. As part of the nationwide KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) network, KIPP LA Schools is dedicated to preparing students in underserved communities for success in college and in life.
KIPP LA uses Smart Choice’s online application process making the submission of applications to one or more of their campuses quick and easy. With the development and addition of schools to the network, the system allows the staff at KIPP LA to easily add new schools or programs, implement online applications and manage the process internally in a few simple steps. Selection is just as simple with a quick customized lottery process and real time wait list management tools, KIPP LA is in control of their selection process ensuring that the process is fair, honest and transparent.
Keeping in touch with parents is key for the KIPP LA team so in addition to the standard email notifications that parents receive from the system, KIPP LA utilizes the Letter Builder Component. This allows administrators to easily create and manage letter templates as well as generate and print letters for numerous students directly from the system. In addition to paper communications, KIPP LA utilizes a custom communication log allowing staff to easily keep track of parent calls and conversations all within the student’s record and parent account.Click here to visit their site
