“Mrs. Rivera has been a tireless advocate for the children of Bensalem. Her 12 years of service on the Bensalem Township school board has seen the introduction of full day kindergarten, a massive renovation of our high school combined with expansion of program options, including district-wide STEM, a career pathways model, and professional development platforms like our partnership with Professional Learning Partnerships LLC for neurosciences,” said Superintendent Dr. Sam Lee. “Additionally, she was instrumental in bringing the Chromebook 1:1 initiative to our students. Under the watch of Mrs. Rivera, the district is a ‘Districts of Distinction’ honoree, and also received the ‘Best Communities for Music Education’ Award in 2020 and 2021.

“Several Bensalem elementary and middle schools were ranked among the best from a list ranking more than 80,000 public schools across the United States by US News & World Report, and Bensalem High School has been recognized as a top high school. Bensalem is one of 21 districts in Pennsylvania that have joined the Learning 2025 network of demonstration systems, a collaborative network of districts to help advance student-centered, equity-focused, future-driven education, administered by AASA, the School Superintendents Association. All of this in the most challenging times for public education.”
