PoliteChild® Welcomes Education Leader to Advisory Board

Desert, Calif. – October 6, 2005 –The PoliteChild today announced that it has added Darlene Dolan, former Assistant Superintendent at Desert Sands Unified School District to its Board, effective immediately.

"We are honored and so pleased to welcome Ms. Dolan to our Board,” Corinne Gregory, PoliteChild’s President and Founder said about the appointment. “Her expertise in the arena of public education, along with her passion for developing good students and good people is a perfect match for PoliteChild as we grow our business within public schools.”

Ms. Dolan has been involved in education since 1972, first with 14 years in the classroom and, later, in school and district administration. Her career at Moreno Valley School District included being honored as Principal of the Year and participating on the Moreno Valley School Board. After her move to the Coachella Valley, she became involved in Desert Sands Unified School District where she served as Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment under Superintendent Dr. Doris Wilson. Ms. Dolan’s achievements at Desert Sands secured her an invitation to present to the Office of Education in Washington D.C. on the topic of school choice. Her success with securing grants is well-known and broadly recognized.

Ms. Dolan has developed a strong reputation for being passionate about quality education for all children. She has long recognized the link between good social skills and children’s academic achievement, and has been an ardent supporter of the PoliteChild and its contributions to improving our educational system and building student success.
