Meyers will take superintendent position

Alexis Meyer, long-time employee of the district, was unanimously appoved by the school committee Monday night as the new superintendent.

The East Greenwich School Committee unanimously voted to select Alexis Meyer as superintendent of schools on Monday. Meyer will replace interim superintendent Frank Pallotta, who assumed the role in January following the departure of long-term superintendent Victor Mercurio.

Meyer has earned the respect and admiration of her colleagues over the course of 25 years of service to the district. She originally came to the district as a social studies instructor but transitioned into administration after 10 years of teaching. After earning her master’s degree she went on to become assistant principal and then principal, before assuming her role as director of teaching and learning in 2018.
