Rocky View Schools (RVS) has announced the appointment of Lori Meyer as associate superintendent of learning, effective Feb.1, 2021.
“An accomplished 25-year career as a teacher, student support teacher, vice-principal, principal, registered psychologist, and most recently superintendent, Lori brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in public education to RVS,” says RVS superintendent of schools Greg Luterbach.
Meyer joins RVS from Prairie South Schools in Moose Jaw, SK, where she has held the role of superintendent of learning since 2011. Prior to that, she served the division as superintendent of student support services and student support consultant and psychologist. She also taught for several years in rural Saskatchewan.
In her education career, Meyer has successfully planned, implemented, revised, and monitored various teaching and inclusive learning programs achieving significant results. Through Lori’s leadership, student reading scores increased by nearly 10 per cent due to the improved reading plan her team implemented across the division.
She was also responsible for leading an initiative that successfully secured provincial and local board funded pre-kindergarten programs providing every child in the division with access to a pre-kindergarten program staffed by a teacher and an assistant.
Community work has been a vital part of her role, partnering with a wide number of agencies to create and support programs that meet the non-academic needs of children and their families.
Meyer has a Doctor of Education, a specialization in reading and literacy from Capella University, and is a Registered Psychologist from Saskatchewan College of Psychologists.
