Riverside School District “Achieves” 68.8 out of 100 in National Ranking…Administration and School Board are Satisfied

Are we asking too much for our school district to at least get 80% out of 100% in National School Rankings.

With an overall score of 68.8 out of 100, Riverside personnel and school board are congratulating the staff and are proud of their performance.

Their graduation rate is 89% and below State averages! Honestly, I would be embarrassed by these scores.

The 2023 – 2024 rankings must be based on 2022 – 2023 test scores.

LFC Editorial:

So how did the Riverside administration view their performance? From their Facebook page we can measure their acceptance of a below average performance.

The standards in public education have dropped so far that we now celebrate being less than average. The State of Ohio has a reading proficiency of 60%!

One good news is that Riverside has a very good marching band.
