Board of Trustees

The Riverside School is governed by its board of trustees, which follows the school's by-laws and best practices suggested by the National Association of Independent Schools. The board employs the head of school, who is responsible for the day to day operational and educational functions of Riverside. Through strong leadership of recent presidents, the board has grown to be comprised of an effective team of individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences, recently revised the school's policies, and need to draft a long-term financial plan. The board has committees on finance, development, governance, and facilities, which are held accountable to their meeting schedules and goals in order to be effective and alleviate the work of the head of school. The positive and close working relationship of recent board presidents with the head of school has reflected Riverside's strong, supportive community atmosphere.
