Michelle Ryan is dedicated to addressing the issue of education equity, both within her district and beyond. She has implemented several strategies that aim to give every student—regardless of race, gender and abilities—the same access to an outstanding education. As part of her ongoing work with at-risk students, Ryan played an integral role in the implementation of a $35,000 Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation Grant, which went toward strategies that supported 50 students who sought an alternative high school route. It included creating the first online courses at the school, remedial instruction access and more.
