Greetings from Dr. Roth

Forest Ridge School District has earned a reputation as a caring community that strives for academic excellence and boundless opportunities offered beyond the classroom setting as they provide enriching learning experiences for students at all levels. As an educator for 21 years, I wholeheartedly value the programs and services in place, and I am committed to building upon past practices to ensure that current and future students have opportunities to explore their interests and find their true passions.

In addition to the child-centered educational program, it was the level of community involvement that drew me to this district. I witnessed this sense of pride as I underwent the interview process and have experienced it firsthand throughout my interactions thus far.  Please know that it is my intent to make every effort to foster and cultivate this practice to ensure the continued success of our students, schools and community.

While serving as your Superintendent of Schools, I plan to be accessible to all stakeholders and maintain an open-door communication policy. I encourage and welcome any questions, comments, or concerns you have about our schools and can be reached directly at [email protected].

I know many of you are anticipating the start of the new school year, the district will have additional information regarding this soon. In the meantime, you can find the 2021-2022 school year calendar and our school supply lists on our website. 

It is an exciting time for Forest Ridge School District 142, and I’m looking forward to the year ahead. Please accept my best wishes for a happy and healthy summer.



Dr. Kristine L. Roth
