“Community Conversations” town hall series to launch this December

A new town hall series from Marietta City Schools will launch next month. The series, called “Community Conversations,” will be a monthly discussion and a chance for a real dialogue about topics that matter to you and your children.

“These town halls are designed as an opportunity for the district to highlight projects and initiatives we’re working on and will give people a chance to ask questions directly to us,” said Superintendent Grant Rivera, “The goal is to foster a healthy, frank discussion that keeps people informed and gets their questions answered.”

These “Community Conversation” events will be virtual to make it convenient for people to join wherever they are. Superintendent Grant Rivera and other leaders in the school system will talk through major projects and initiatives and give the public a chance to ask questions.

“Our goal is to take what we learn from these conversations and use that knowledge to make our work more effective for our students, staff, and the Marietta community as a whole,” said Rivera.

The first two community conversations will center around the topics of SAT/ACT preparation and Dyslexia resources available to our students. The SAT/ACT prep webinar will be particularly relevant to all middle and high school families.
