Riverside Local Schools
Educating Excellence!

A Message From Dr. Rateno

Dear Parents, Guardians & Members of the Riverside community,

I am honored and excited to introduce myself as the new Superintendent of Riverside Local Schools. I am thrilled to be returning to a community that values education and is committed to providing the best possible opportunities for our students.

As a lifelong educator, I have dedicated my career to improving the lives of young people through education. I have served in a variety of roles, including teacher, assistant principal, LaMuth Middle School principal, and a district administrator. I have always been driven by a passion for helping students succeed.

In my new role as Superintendent, I am committed to working collaboratively with all members of the community to ensure that our schools are safe, inclusive, innovative, and provide rigorous and engaging learning experiences for all students. I believe that every child has the potential to succeed, and I am committed to providing the support and resources necessary to help all students reach their full potential.

I look forward to becoming integrated with members of the community again and working together to continue the tradition of excellence District-wide. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns, and I look forward to meeting you in the near future.


Christopher J. Rateno, Ed.D.
