      KIPP, the Knowledge Is Power Program, is a national network of free,
      open-enrollment, college-preparatory public schools in under-
      resourced communities throughout the United States. KIPP believes
      that there are no shortcuts to academic success. KIPP schools have
      been widely recognized for putting under-served students on the path
      to college. More than 80 percent of KIPP students are low-income and
      more than 95 percent are African American or Hispanic/Latino.
      Nationally, nearly 80 percent of KIPP alumni have matriculated to
      college. Outstanding educators, more time in school learning, a
      rigorous college-preparatory curriculum, and a strong culture of
      achievement and support help KIPP students make significant academic
      gains and continue to excel in high school and college.

      The KIPP Foundation is responsible for offering key services to KIPP
      schools and regions in support of quality and sustainability.
      Achieving quality and sustainability is both particularly important
      and challenging during periods of significant growth and change and
      KIPP is preparing to embark on just such a transformation: by the
      fall of 2008, there will be 66 locally-run KIPP schools in 12 regions
      which serve over 14,000 students across the country. Work is
      underway, however, to grow this network to up to 100 schools within
      the next 3-4 years.

      The Executive Vice President of Research, Innovation and Design is a
      new position which will be primarily responsible for the KIPP
      Foundation's ability to innovate and adapt, while effectively
      distributing knowledge and insights throughout the network of KIPP
      regions and schools. This individual will report directly to the CEO
      and will be a member of a five person senior management team. Key
      responsibilities will include overseeing diverse range of new
      initiatives to enable the Foundation to anticipate and respond to
      emerging needs from the Foundation, network or external environment;
      developing and executing vision and strategy for Research, Innovation
      and Design; building and managing a high-performing Research,
      Innovation and Design team that is able to support the Foundation,
      regions and schools in their drive to deliver transformational
      educational outcomes for students; ensuring alignment, consistency,
      and clear communication of role and related services available to the
      Foundation, regions and schools (if applicable), such that the value
      proposition and available resources to various constituents are
      clear; partnering with CEO and other leadership team members to build
      the organizational capacity required for operational excellence and
      sustainability of the KIPP Foundation; and engaging key
      constituents. A full description of the position is available upon
      request.

      The founding Executive Vice President for Research, Innovation and
      Design will hold a demonstrated track record in developing strategy,
      addressing complex problems, and delivering high-quality client
      service. Specifically, a track record of successfully working with
      distributed organizations, especially those undergoing change or
      transformation, and experience working with high performing public
      schools serving low income children or K-12 public education reform
      is highly desired.

      This search is moving very quickly. The review of applications will
      begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
      For best consideration, applications should be submitted
      electronically prior by June 18, 2008. Applications should include a
      letter of interest and a current resume. Nominations for the
      position, applications, or questions about the position and/or the
      search process should be directed to:
