At KIPP Indy, we are committed to continuing to foster a deep partnership with families and the community. This year, KIPP Indy launched the Family and Community Engagement team. In addition to meeting families’ immediate needs, the FACE team has been hard at work planning family and community engagement events and programs for 2022-23 school year. To plan, the FACE team is hosting listening sessions to ensure the new programming aligns with our current families’ vision for family engagement!
