Prior to his current position, Riegel also served Franklin High School in Franklin, OH, as its principal, during which time graduation rates increased from 84% to 93%. Riegel’s graduation improvement strategy, which focuses on key areas of data analysis, also earned the school an “Excellent” rating from the Ohio Department of Education.
