By Chad Hilliker, Loveland City School District superintendent
The sounds of Loveland Elementary School’s Mallet Madness set the tone for the evening – upbeat. At the Loveland City School District the atmosphere is one of excitement about a past we can be proud of, a present that provides excellent education for our more than 4,700 exceptional students and a future of moving the district forward.
I had the pleasure of presenting the annual State of the Schools address to our Tiger Family Wednesday, Jan. 15, along with Treasurer/CFO Brett Griffith. It was an opportunity to share about the abundance of opportunities our students have in academics, arts, athletics and community service. It was an opportunity to show our investors how the district has maintained a fiscally conservative approach to management. It was an opportunity to engage our stakeholders in my vision for the direction we intend to take the district – developing critical, creative thinkers who will have increased access to science, technology, engineering and math to prepare them for success after high school graduation.
I am upbeat about the state of our school district.
If you missed the live presentation, I encourage you to visit the district website (www.lovelandschools.org) to watch the video.
I encourage you to meet with me in person if you have any questions about the district. I will hold an “Office Hours” event from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19. Please contact Julie Dunn ([email protected]) to reserve a time slot. That meeting opportunity will take place at the Board of Education Administrative Office Building at 757 South Lebanon Road in Loveland.
I will also hold “Community Coffees” two dates in February:
- 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19 at Branch Hill Coffee, 371 Bridge Street, Loveland
- 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 20 at the Loveland Starbucks
I do believe in this district, and this community. I am blessed to call Loveland home both personally and professionally. Together, we are ready to move forward.
Many stripes, one tiger!
