21st Century Learning Director's Message

Dr. Brigitte Garth-Young


Greetings Dolton School District 149 Family!!!


The week of November 15th is designated as School Board Recognition Week so that we may SALUTE our illustrious school board members featuring Rayya Ghani (President), Lolita Liggons (Vice President), Bertha Jolly (Secretary), Darlene Gray Everett (Member), Wilbur Tillman (Member), Zacarias Castillo (Member), and Teresa Jemine (Member). Our school board members play a critical role in serving our students, our communities, and our state. All 149ers should recognize the vital contributions these dedicated members play in the education of our children. They are extraordinary people who voluntarily tackle the enormous job of governing our school district.

School board members are our neighbors, secretaries, doctors, lawyers, homemakers, teachers, architects, professors, and business owners, just to name a few. While they wear many hats in the workday world, our board members collaborate when they get down to the business of leading our school district. Our board pulls together as a team toward a common goal – helping students achieve. They uphold the pillars of Excellence, Humanization and Pride!!!

The time spent in board meetings represents just a small fraction of the hours the school board devotes to leading our district. They undergo intense professional development to stay current of the latest trends in educational leadership, and are deeply involved in community/school events and activities.

Please take this opportunity to help acknowledge the men and women who take the time to share their leadership and voice about the future of the children in Dolton School District 149. 



Dr. Brigitte Garth-Young
