Riverdale School Board
The five-member Riverdale School Board is the policy-making body of our school district. It is responsible for providing an educational program for students living within the district.
To accomplish its role, the board:
- Determines the long range direction of the district
- Establishes policies that direct the instructional and support programs
- Communicates with the community
- Employs and evaluates the superintendent
- Negotiates with employee groups to determine salaries and benefits
- Calls elections on bond proposals
- Approves the annual budget
All Riverdale School Board regular meetings begin at 6 p.m. and are open to the public. Meetings are held at the Riverdale Grade School Commons, unless otherwise noted. Public participation time is scheduled at the end of each regular meeting to allow community members the opportunity to share information or concerns about educational issues.
In addition to the regular meetings, the board has scheduled work study sessions. Work study sessions are special meetings in which the board meets but does not intend to take any action. Work sessions enable the board to gather information and discuss and review various aspects of an issue. Like regular meetings, work study sessions are open to the public. These meetings are held at the Riverdale Grade School Commons, unless otherwise noted, and typically begin at 4:30 p.m.
