Interview with Dr. Grant Rivera

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, 50CAN will be working to connect with some of our country’s leading thinkers, educators and policymakers as they share their best thinking on the needed adaptations for our education system, districts, schools and classrooms that will best serve students during this challenging and chaotic time.

Steven Quinn, outreach director for GeorgiaCAN is joined by Dr. Grant Rivera, the superintendent of Marietta City Schools. A former school leader, Dr. Rivera is leading Marietta’s school system through the Covid-19 pandemic with a clear vision. In the interview, he talks about the importance of leading with values, shares how his district was able to ensure that over 93% of students were engaged with distance learning each day and presents his team’s creative and inspiring plan for education during the summer.
