YOU HAVE A VOICE IN THE DIRECTION OF THE BRIGHTON SCHOOL
Do you know that you have a voice in the body that sets the strategic direction of The Brighton School? We bet this very well may be a surprise to you! The Dyslexia Association of Greater Baton Rouge (DAGBR) is the umbrella organization under which the school operates. The DAGBR Board of Directors concurrently serves as The Brighton School’s Board.
The Board of Directors is where you, as a parent of a Brighton student, come in to play. All parents are automatically members of DAGBR when their child/children enroll at the school. Board meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. (10 months out of the year), and we highly encourage all parents to attend. Each meeting includes discussions and information regarding finances, marketing, the Executive Director and Principal’s report as well as any unfinished business items.
Additionally, DAGBR members are responsible for electing new members to the Board of Directors. At the beginning of each year, we begin the process of seeking new members to serve on the Dyslexia Association of Greater Baton Rouge (DAGBR) Board of Directors. As a Board member, you will have the opportunity to serve and support the school and take part in broadening the future for our outstanding students, faculty, and staff. With that said, you play a very important part in setting strategic direction and long-range planning for the school.
If you are interested in submitting and application (click on the link at the bottom of the page), the deadline is Tuesday, February 15th and elections will be held on Tuesday, April 26th at 6 p.m. It is critical that parents attend this meeting and participate in the election of Board members.
The next Board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 18, at 6 p.m. at the school and we hope to see you there!
We are a school that is dedicated to students who have dyslexia and other language-based learning differences. We believe that ALL students can learn. It’s a matter of how the instruction is given and the support that is available to push students to their potential.
