Superintendent's Message

Loveland Tiger Community,

We are off and running for a great start to the year. We started the school year with a staggered start, bringing in half our students on day one, half on day two, and everyone on day three. The goal was to ease the transition into the year, teaching students routines and working through any problems that popped up with fewer people in the building. I have received great feedback from families, students, and staff.

We’re expecting to get 5 stars in every category in the upcoming state report card, which you can read about in detail below. I am very proud of our students and staff for all of their hard work in classrooms. To receive all 5 stars is quite an accomplishment for a school district!

Please mark your calendar for October 26, 2022, when the district welcomes the entire community to Loveland High School for our #beLOVEland Showcase Night from 6:30-8 pm. This is a district-wide open house, where our students and staff show off some of the great programs across the district. If you’re curious about what’s happening in our buildings, this is your opportunity to learn more.

During our #beLOVEland Showcase Night, I’ll be holding an information session in the Loveland High School media center to update our community about our Strategic Vision and the upcoming November levy. You can find more information on our Levy Information page on the school website:

As always, if you have any questions, please reach out to me at

Go Tigers!

Loveland City School District Expecting 5-Star Report Card

The preliminary data from our upcoming state report card looks great for Loveland City Schools. The official report card will not be released until September 15, 2022, but the district should receive five stars in every graded category.

Letter grades on the state report card have gone away, replaced by a 1-5 “Star” rating system. Individual schools are not rated overall this year but will be next year as the new report card system is implemented across Ohio.

Here are our preliminary results:

  • Achievement: 5 Stars

  • Early Literacy: 5 Stars

  • Gap Closing: 5 Stars

  • Graduation Rate: 5 Stars

The areas of “Progress” and “College, Career, Workforce, and Military Readiness” are not yet rated on the report card but will be implemented in the next few years. We are already positioned to do well in those areas. Our Loveland Tiger Pathways program, which focuses on career development, internships, and business partnerships is already very successful with students.

Dr. Stace Orso, Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning, delivered a presentation at the August 23, 2022 Board of Education meeting. You can view the presentation by following this link.

Loveland Tiger Pathways

Introducing Loveland Tiger Pathways

Our College and Career Counselor, Drews Mitchell, has been doing great work in the district, helping guide students through career exploration, and connecting them with real-world opportunities. His great work hasn’t changed, but we wanted to make what he’s doing a little easier to understand, so more students and families can connect with him. He shares great information on Twitter, which you can find by following this link. Exposing students to the many pathways to lifelong success through enlistment, enrollment, or employment is one of our #beLOVEland Strategic Vision goals. We are excited to see this program grow.
