Mrs. Bryson is an education reformer, owns a successful small business, and volunteers in local law enforcement’s anti-gang programs.
As a trustee on the Capistrano Unified School District, Mrs. Bryson has been one of California’s leading education reformers. She took a leading role in the often-painful process of balancing the budget while increasing educational excellence. Employees took salary reductions, competitive bidding was enacted, and anti-
nepotism rules were passed. The checkbook and budget were placed on-line so parents could be empowered to act. Soon, the district was in the black.
At the same time she was dealing with tough financial decisions, she was protecting and enhancing the programs that led to better performing schools. Mrs. Bryson fought for smaller classroom sizes, protected parental rights, and supported charter school expansion. She has consistently worked to expand arts education. During her service, CUSD became the top performing large school district in the state, and has remained so for three years.
For several years, Mrs. Bryson has worked with local law enforcement’s Gang Reduction Intervention Program (GRIP). Her role has been in the expansion of the program within San Clemente schools. Fluent in Spanish, she has particularly focused on Latino families with at-risk children. The program has increased literacy rates, decreased truancy and gang affiliation.
The Hispanic 100 STATE PAC recognizes Mrs. Bryson’s pro-active leadership skills and fiscally responsible approach to policy as indicative factors for our endorsement.
