Board President's Message

Mrs. Darlene Gray Everett



As School Board President, I am extremely proud of what our schools have to offer students and families.  The District has embraced our new reading initiative Balanced Literacy and many great things are happening in all schools around the district.  Dolton School District 149 has a dynamic staff consisting of caring and innovative teachers, supportive and encouraging administration and a community of involved parents.  

Our School Board understands the importance of supporting our teachers and administration while maintaining fiscal responsibility for the betterment of our entire school district community.  Thank you for allowing us to represent your interests as a community and the interests of Dolton School District 149 Students.

I know it is hard to believe that we are at the end of 2019 and moving into a brand New Year.  In the spirit of giving, many people donated items for our Secret Angel Program in the schools, donated toys for our Annual Breakfast with Santa Program and Holiday parent raffle. Thank you for making the holidays a little brighter for children and families.

Monthly Board meetings are a fantastic opportunity to learn more about what is happening in School District 149 and hear firsthand how we are moving forward! We have an exciting year ahead of us, and we appreciate your continued support! 


On behalf of the Board of Education, I wish everyone a peaceful and joyous holiday season, and best wishes for the New Year!  



Darlene Gray Everett, Board President
