Investment in People
At KIPP NYC, we invest in your career as much as we invest in you as a person. Work-life balance is extremely important to us. We offer Wellness Wednesdays throughout the year, where teachers and students have a half day of school and get to enjoy activities that bring them joy. We also acknowledge our staff members with rewards for their time with us, including:
- Longevity Compensation. After three years with KIPP NYC, teachers earn additional compensation in their annual salary.
- All of Us Will Learn Award. Staff members have the opportunity to take a class or gain greater knowledge in an area of interest and get reimbursed up to $300, after completing three years at KIPP NYC.
- We Remember, We Appreciate Sabbatical. After completing 10 continuous years at KIPP NYC, staff are eligible for an eight-week paid sabbatical.
- Associate Teacher Program. Aspiring lead teachers are provided with valuable opportunities to instruct students within a nurturing educational setting, backed by continuous professional growth.
