News From The KAC Culture Team
In consideration of the constraints placed by our strenuous life schedules, in addition to the realization that many of our scholars share issues such as bullying, potential violence, or other issues with parents much earlier than shared with Staff, we have created external links from which parents can make referrals from home. Below you shall find the links to the current Culture Team. Please pay close attention as the links are based on the last name of your scholar. Please continue to follow normal communication response times as stated by our School Leader Mr. Howland, as well as what is listed in your student/parent handbooks.

Breakfast and Lunch Meals
All students eat free! KIPP Atlanta Collegiate is a participant in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). The CEP is an alternative to collecting, approving, and verifying household eligibility applications for free and reduced price eligible students in high poverty local educational agencies (LEAs) for schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. Community eligibility has a number of benefits to students and schools. It helps schools reduce administrative costs related to collecting and processing applications and tracking students based on meal eligibility status. Participating schools no longer have to collect payments during the meal service. It also helps students because families no longer have to complete meal applications and it can reduce stigma because all students are eating meals at no cost, regardless of their income status.

For grades 9-12, students will utilize public transportation (MARTA) to get to and from school. The school provides free weekly MARTA cards to students who are eligible to receive free and reduced lunch. Because the school provides MARTA passes for students and they will be representing our school, students are exprected to maintain scholarly behavior while on the train and/or bus. Parents/guadians who provide transportation for their children are exprected to drop off and pick up their children in a timely manner.
