Stacey A Rizzo has resided in Revere for 35 years and has been honored to serve on the Revere School Committee since 2009 which she served several terms as Vice Chair and Secretary. Equity for all children in Revere having equal access to a wonderfully fulfilling education, regardless of any differences, is extremely important to her. This is why she lives by the quote “Let your decisions not be political, but analytical.” Mrs. Rizzo has served on the Policy Committee, Personnel Committee and Special Education Committee along with being the liaison for Revere SEPAC, the district’s Health and Wellness Committee, and Shore Collaborative BOD.
As much as Mrs. Rizzo loves her work with the school community, she is deeply involved in her community. She has started the Neighborhood Watch Group and also is committed to each of the City’s neighborhood committees, with beautifications and the building of playgrounds in each ward and school.
In 2013, Stacey had the opportunity to join the MASC as District IX Secretary and in 2014 became the Chair of the Urban Division. Attending the NSBA Equity Symposium in Washington D.C. allowed her along with others to bring back vital info for our areas. This also allowed us to see the need and benefits of starting a Poverty Summit, which has been held at Clark University, Worcester for the last 2 years. At the November 2018 MASC Conference Stacey was voted in as the Chair for Division II (Metropolitan) and is looking forward to reaching out to other members to bring and share workshops and info that will allow us to be stronger! She is so appreciative of the networking, comradery, and education that she has gained by being a member of the MASC. The conventions and workshops allow her to be a better school committee by the district she serves.
Stacey is so grateful to her husband, John for having patience for her crazy schedule. They have raised 3 amazing sons and with the help of the Revere School District they have gone on to happy and fulfilling careers.
Stacey is a proud graduate of Everett High School 1975. She also attended Youville School of Nursing. Prior to the Revere School Committee she welcomed every Monday-Friday by working in the nurse’s office at the McKinley Elementary School, for 20 years. Although she works each & everyday as an advocate of our students, families, and community, she loves cooking & gardening.
