2022: Together for a Vision

Loveland Tiger Community,

I am excited to be working on a strategic vision for Loveland City Schools in 2022. This process will allow us to connect with our parents, students, staff, and community members to create a vision for what we want Loveland City Schools to look like in the years ahead.

This work begins this month with some community input opportunities. We will review our Portrait of a Tiger, which was created with community input, and confirm it as the basis for our strategic vision work. Mark the following dates on your calendar:

  • Community Input Night #1 - 5:30 & 6:30 pm on Wednesday, 2/9 at Loveland High School

  • Community Input Night #2 - 6:00 pm on Wednesday, 2/23 at Loveland Middle School

You will not have to attend these sessions to participate because we will be sharing tools on our website at to gather as much input as possible from our community.

We are building a Strategic Vision Design Team, made up of about 100 people from our community to help in this process. The team will include parents, students, staff, and community members who will sit down several times over the next few months to work together to create our vision. I want this group to represent the diverse opinions and insights of our Loveland City Schools community and if you or someone you know feels called to help us on this important project - you can fill out this form to let us know of your interest and we will be in touch.

This week we also released our district Quality Profile - a 12-page document laying out the accomplishments of our students and highlighting programs in our schools. You can view it on our website by following this link.

We think it is important for everyone in our community to know what’s going on in Loveland City Schools, and to be involved in our strategic vision process, which is why we recently sent a postcard to every address in the district to point people towards this information.

I’m excited to start on this journey building a shared vision of success for our students and laying out the action plan to get us there.

Go Tigers!

Treasurer’s Message

In our recently released Quality Profile, you’ll see a breakdown of how the district has used federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds. You can review the Quality Profile by following this link. These federal pandemic relief funds have been used to make improvements for the health and safety of students and sustain our current level of operations, rather than adding additional staff. This has allowed us to extend the timeline for asking the community for additional funding. We have also maintained staffing reductions put in place after the 2019 levy failure, which has also allowed us to extend the timetable for additional funding.

Loveland City School District also recently received a clean audit report from the State of Ohio. Auditor of State Keith Faber has accepted the Independent Auditor’s Report of Loveland City School District prepared by Plattenburg and Associates Inc. The unmodified audit report states that the District has, as of the audit date of June 31, 2021, been operating “in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.”

“This is another confirmation of the quality accounting practices and fiscal responsibility the team in the Treasurer’s office strives for every day,” said Interim Treasurer Robert Giuffre’.

This report does not reflect any ongoing investigations of the District being conducted by the Auditor of State. The Auditor’s report can be viewed under the “Important Documents” section of the Treasurer’s webpage by following this link.

If you have questions about the financial operations of Loveland City Schools, please contact me and I will be more than happy to assist.

Showcase Night 2022

We are excited to host our Loveland City School District (LCSD) Showcase event on Wednesday, February 9, 2022, from 6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m. at Loveland High School. This giant open house will spotlight the amazing work of our students and staff from around the district while also hosting information tables from many of our community partners. With approximately 55 participants planning to attend, this evening is certain to highlight the growth and achievement of students of all ages.

This gallery-walk format allows observers the opportunity to peruse the various tables while engaging with the students about their own learning. “The LCSD Showcase is a perfect opportunity for families and community members to get a quick overview of the academically rich programs that Loveland has to offer. We strongly encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to see all of these programs in one location,” stated Andrea Conner, Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning.

City of Loveland Orange and Black Day

Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase Honorary Loveland Tigers

Loveland City School District was happy to partner with the City and Mayor Kathy Bailey on a special event during a recent City Council Meeting. The Mayor proclaimed Sunday, January 30, 2022, “Orange and Black Day” in support of the Cincinnati Bengals playing for the AFC Championships. Loveland High School Principal Adam Reed also named Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase “Honorary Loveland Tigers” completing a tiger trifecta. Burrow and Chase are Bengal Tigers now, they were LSU Tigers, and now they can claim a Loveland Tiger as their honorary high school mascot too. Additionally, our Loveland Athletic Boosters made Evan McPherson an honorary member. Thank you to the Mayor and everyone at Loveland City Hall for helping to make this happen. Thank you to our football players, cheerleaders, and everyone else who joined in the fun. Now it’s on to the Super Bowl! Go Tigers, Go Bengals! Who Dey!

Subs Are Stepping Up for Loveland

Mike Meece, a Tiger parent, and owner of New Life Landscaping is one of our newest Loveland City Schools substitute teachers. He heard of our need for subs and went through the process to be approved. He’s been in classrooms several days already and his help is much appreciated.

This year has reminded us just how important substitute teachers, food service workers, custodians, and bus drivers are. Our staff shows up every day for our students, but on occasions when they’re out sick, substitutes help us keep our schools running.

If you’re interested in becoming a sub, or a full-time employee for Loveland City Schools, follow the links below or call our Human Resources office at 513-774-6202.
