Equity

Thomas Philip

Dean of Culture, Grant Ranch

“Tom organized the Socio-emotional Learning (SEL) Team for the past two years ensuring that all students, especially those at most risk, have the supports they need to be successful in school. The team has weekly morning meetings that continued during remote learning. The SEL team set up a website full of resources for our families. Tom checks in with families when students’ participation dips to see what supports they need and then helps secure resources. He is truly living our Shared Core Value of Equity!”
