About Micah Grant
Micah Grant is a Natomas Unified School District (NUSD) Board Trustee. Elected in 2016, he has worked tirelessly to bring fresh and innovative ideas to the district and its schools.
Seeking enhanced opportunities for students, Micah has advocated for International Baccalaureate (IB) programs, more vocational training opportunities, technology funding, and increased district transparency and responsiveness. He has also helped expand career counseling options for student-athletes.
Safeguarding parental rights, Micah led a thorough review of district suspension and expulsion practices to ensure black students are not disproportionately punished, nor needlessly removed from the classroom. The district must now immediately notify parents in the event of an involuntary transfer. Micah also put in motion a board meeting of the district’s special education procedures to ensure the district honors and properly implements Individualized Education Plans (IEPs).
Micah meets regularly with teacher leaders, fostering open dialogue and transparency between the Board and community. He also successfully lobbied for transfer and reassignment options for teachers impacted by changes to the NUSD school system. He has been an active voice for Natomas Unified’s highest need students, general education students, parents, teachers, and all who are represented in the Natomas community.
Fulfilling his pledge to support teachers, students, and members of his community, Micah has helped lead the transformation of the district’s culture, bringing much-needed reform to Natomas schools. Board meetings are now live-streamed, and Trustees can place items directly on meeting agendas.
Micah’s efforts have brought about enriched educational experiences for students attending Natomas public and charter schools. He has helped cut administrative waste, returned money to the classroom, kept class sizes low, and improved test scores.
Micah’s professional experience includes work in both houses of the California State Legislature and at the California State Board of Equalization, where he focused on media outreach and taxpayer education.
While working in the Legislature, Micah consulted for former Vice Chair and Senate Education Committee member Bob Huff, promoting policies and reforms that help ensure every child receives a stellar education. Additionally, Micah served in the administration of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Early in his career Micah also worked as a supplemental educational service provider, tutoring elementary and middle school children at the Roberts Family Development Center in Del Paso Heights and has volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club of Sacramento Teen Center.
Trustee Grant is a native of South Central Los Angeles and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from the University of California, Davis and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix.
Micah, his wife Janae, and their daughter London live in Natomas. Together, they enjoy reading, exercising and gaming.
