The Lafayette Parish School System is pleased to announce the appointment of Alex Melton as the Director of District Progress and Compliance. 

Mr. Melton brings 26 years of experience to his new role, the last 12 with LPSS. He worked as a classroom teacher for 14 years and served as a Dean of Students, grade-level chair, and coach. His move to administration began in 2012 as an assistant principal at David Thibodaux STEM Magnet Academy, where he served for five years before being promoted to principal of Early College Academy (ECA), where he served for five years. Mr. Melton was appointed principal of David Thibodaux STEM Magnet Academy in 2022. 

While serving as principal at ECA, the school was recognized as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education in 2019, a 2020 National ESEA Distinguished School, and ranked as the number one school in Louisiana. During his time at David Thibodaux STEM Magnet Academy, the school showed academic growth in all major academic areas. 

Mr. Melton states, “I am excited to have the opportunity to positively impact the school system and work with the team to lead the district to even greater heights.” 

“Alex Melton's leadership has consistently driven growth and success at his previous schools.
