Superintendent's Message

Loveland Tiger Community,

We have been working together as a community over the past few months to build a Strategic Vision. Families, students, community members, and staff have been involved in great conversations, providing feedback about the future they want for our Loveland Tiger students. Together we’ve designed a plan with the goal areas of student success, collaborative culture, community engagement, and fiscal responsibility.

We will unveil our completed Strategic Vision during Launch Night on Monday, June 6 at 5 pm in the Loveland Middle School Cafeteria. I’m excited for everyone to see the results of our community’s hard work. This informal meeting is an opportunity to talk about what our Strategic Vision means for our kids and our district. Following Launch Night, our Board of Education will hold a Special Meeting at 6 pm to review the Strategic Vision.

During the Special Board of Education Meeting, the Board will hear from our Treasurer about present and future District finances, revenues, and resources. Federal ESSER pandemic relief funds and significant cuts after the March 2020 levy failure have allowed the district to delay requesting additional funding. The district’s most recent five-year forecast projects the district will move into deficit spending beginning in Fiscal Year 2023. You can review the five-year forecast by following this link.

The timeline for placing a levy on the ballot in November requires the Board to take action over the summer. If any action is taken, we will be sure to update our community. Over the past several months we have had many community members involved in our Strategic Vision process, and we look forward to more great conversations about the future of Loveland City Schools.

Have a safe, happy summer, and please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Mike Broadwater

Thank you, Community Partners!

Loveland City Schools recognized the community and business organizations that have created experiential learning opportunities for our students. These groups have partnered with us to develop internships, apprenticeships, and other programs to give our students real-world career experiences. Students who go through these programs have a chance to explore their interests, possibly earn credit toward graduation, and in some cases, earn a paycheck.

This program exemplifies the #beLOVEland spirit in our community because these programs are all about forming relationships. It starts with the relationship College and Career Counselor Drews Mitchell develops with our partner organizations and continues when our students form relationships with professionals in the community through their work experience.

Thank you to the following individuals and the organizations they represent. If you are interested in investing in our Loveland Tiger students with an experiential learning opportunity, please contact Drews Mitchell at
