Earlier this year, JPMorgan Chase provided several technological improvements to KIPP NYC, configuring the schools' SharePoint software to enable teachers and the administration to more efficiently create and search reports, which in turn will help improve the quality of education they can provide to students. The firm also collaborated with Syracuse University, whose Information Technology students are helping to develop requirements and provide an analysis for an Open Source Curriculum Platform (OSCP), which will allow KIPP teachers to upload their documents, pictures, videos and other materials from their curricula to a website that is accessible to other teachers in the network. With the OSCP, educators will be able to perform various functions, such as search and browse, add, update, and branch the curriculum.JPMorgan Chase also recently provided financing to help KIPP expand its network of schools in low-income communities in Bronx, N.Y.; Lynn, Mass.; and Washington, DC. Through the New Markets Tax Credit program, the firm invested over $38 million to help KIPP construct the first high school in New York City, a middle and high school in Lynn, and a renovation and expansion of KIPP DC. KIPP NYC College Prep in the Bronx will be KIPP's first high school program in New York City. It will enroll up to 1,000 students. KIPP Academy Lynn is a new middle and high school building that will house more than 40 classrooms in addition to a library, cafeteria, gymnasium and outdoor ball field. JPMorgan Chase also facilitated a transformational renovation and expansion of KIPP DC's Shaw campus that will eventually enroll approximately 1,000 preschoolers through 8 th graders.
