Videos from KSS

KSS is a week where KIPP teachers, school leaders, staff, board members, and supporters come together for a week of professional development and celebration.  Other than catching up with all of my friends (and making new ones), the highlight of KSS for me was this 4-minute video that was created for and shown for the first time at the Gala Dinner and Award Ceremony that closed out KSS:  It is AMAZING – totally inspiring.  In particular, it gave me goosebumps to see what's happened to all five KIPPsters who were interviewed in the Sept. 1999 60 Minutes segment ( that was a catalyst in launching KIPP nationally.  (I filmed the video as it was being shown and posted it here: – it's low quality, but you can hear the crowd going NUTS!)
