We are pleased to announce the appointment of Ana Meyers, executive director of the Pennsylvania Coalition of Public Charter Schools as a new commissioner.
In her current role, Meyers manages a statewide coalition of 125 charter schools. Previously, she was director of legislative affairs and director of partnership programs at LeadingAge PA, a statewide association representing 360 non-profit senior facilities. She has also served in the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue and advocated for school choice and charter reform legislation as a state director with FreedomWorks. Meyers is a native of Brazil and earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration in marketing and international business from Baylor University.
Her extensive leadership background gives us a stronger understanding of the relationship between education and government affairs
“Ana is well versed in education reform and the impact of state government on schools locally,” said Lisa Marie McCauley, Ed.D., president of the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools. “She will bring this experience in her role as commissioner and will continue to serve as an important voice for charter school educators everywhere.”
