MLK Day: Realizing the Dream

Guest Speaker: Cherelle Parker P’31
Monday, January 17, at 7 PM 

SCH's Diversity Parent Resource Network was honored to have Councilwoman Cherelle Parker P’31 as our keynote speaker for our annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration.

Councilwoman Parker serves the Ninth Council District in Philadelphia. Her passion for neighborhood stabilization and home preservation aligns with SCH’s commitment to equity and we are excited to have her share her reflections on Dr. King’s legacy, how it has impacted our community now, and the importance of service.

Following Councilwoman Parker's remarks, a discussion was moderated by Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Rayna Guy; Head of School, Dr. Steve Druggan; and Parent's Association DPRN Lead, Will Dunbar.

OUR FOUR PILLARS OF ACTION

1.

Creating a platform for discourse with current parents within the community via three scheduled and themed parent forums.

2.

Forming a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee comprised of board members, alumni, faculty, and parents to consider and recommend practices and policy across all aspects of SCH; the committee will continue to meet monthly.

3.

Hiring a workforce at SCH that better represents the diversity of the student body.

4.

Training our faculty and staff in DEI, rethinking curriculum, and analyzing the lens through which we teach.
