At its meeting on Monday, July 20, 2020, the Lower Merion Board of School Directors approved the appointment of Dr. Alexis McGloin as the Lower Merion School District's new Assistant Superintendent. Dr. McGloin joins LMSD from the Central Bucks School District, where she served as Assistant Superintendent for Assessment, Professional Development and Educational Services for just over a year. Dr. McGloin succeeds Dr. Scott Eveslage, who recently became Superintendent of the Hatboro Horsham School District.
Prior to working in Central Bucks, Dr. McGloin served as Superintendent of the Upper Perkiomen School District. During her time in UPSD, the District saw a ten percent increase in graduation rates, an increase in the number of Advanced Placement courses offered, implementation of additional mental health supports for students, and a major middle school renovation and reconfiguration.
Dr. McGloin has also served as an assistant superintendent and principal in the Penn Delco School District. She began her career teaching chemistry and general science in Kingston, Pa.
Dr. McGloin earned her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Education, Educational Administration and Supervision from East Stroudsburg University and a Doctor of Education degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from Temple University.
Superintendent Robert Copeland called Dr. McGloin a standout among a competitive field of highly qualified candidates. "Dr. McGloin offers our District an advantageous combination of both her depth of leadership experience and her fresh viewpoints and energy. I'm thrilled to have her joining our already stellar leadership team."
Dr. McGloin lives in Bryn Mawr with her husband and two children. She enjoys reading and spending time relaxing at the Jersey Shore and is looking forward to joining Lower Merion, despite doing so during a challenging time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"I am honored to be provided this tremendous opportunity to work with the students, staff, administration and community in Lower Merion. The district has an outstanding reputation and I am excited to become a part of the administrative team," Dr. McGloin said.
