In this podcast, Dr. Robert Zywicki, superintendent of the Mount Olive Public Schools, will join the NJSBA’s Ray Pinney to discuss the district’s efforts to overcome the challenges and provide quality instruction. Dr. Zywicki will also explain how the school district’s staff is helping the effort to fight COVID-19 by building face shield components for personal protective equipment.
