OPSB District 1
As a former educator, public school administrator, and two time ‘Principal of the Year’ honoree, John Brown has dedicated his life to the students of Orleans Parish. Brown is currently serving as the interim OPSB District 1 member – after being unanimously appointed to the open seat in March.
John Brown is committed to seeking input from the parents of Orleans Parish on important policy decisions. Stand Parent Endorsement Committee members were encouraged by his willingness to work with them and others to do what is best for students in New Orleans.
Brown voted in support of all schools participating in a singular, open and common enrollment system that works for parents and students and is determined to identify more funding sources for early education programs so that all students can have a smart start. Brown is eager to work on the school board with other members to put a thoughtful and through process for returning schools to the OPSB system in motion.
