The Riverside Local School District is committed to financial transparency. Therefore, we have partnered with the Ohio Treasurer of State's Office to make the district's financial information easily accessible at Ohio Checkbook - Riverside Local Schools. The Ohio Checkbook is updated after the district's books are closed each month. Historical information dating back to fiscal year 2013 is also available.

Monthly Financial Reports

Monthly cash basis financial reports are posted each month once the books are closed and the reports are approved at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of Education.

Audited Annual Financial Reports

Annual financial reports prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) are posted once audited and released by the Ohio Auditor of State's office.

 Historical audited reports can be found at the Auditor of State website.
