Glenbrook School is updating its lighting system throughout the facility for a number of reasons, Headmaster Darden Gladney said, chief among them health reasons.
The school, over a period of time, is switching out the traditional fluorescent lighting with LED lighting, which he said benefits students in a number of ways.
“Flickering lights was one of the reasons we changed them,” he said. “Children or teachers who have a tendency for headaches or migraines, that flickering light can trigger those. Even if you don’t have headaches, it’s distracting. When an LED goes out, it doesn’t flicker.”
Another benefit is its safety, Gladney
