Statement of Purpose
A one-year program that prepares Hector Javier Robles Berúmen, the fellow selected through an application process, to adapt and lead the KIPP school model in an existing school in Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit, Mexico. Facilitated entirely by KIPP Inc. in Houston, Texas, the Fellowship includes intensive summer coursework in an academic setting, residencies at high-performing schools, and individualized coaching. Programming is designed to provide in-depth support and insight into processes and best practices involved in school leadership—ranging from establishing an instructional vision to developing efficient operating systems; from recruiting students to hiring teachers; and from curriculum development to community outreach. The Fellowship culminates the following summer as the fellow adapts their school to their first classes of students.
