Loveland City School District superintendent
On behalf of the Loveland Board of Education, our Loveland School Staff, and especially our 4,700 students, I want to thank you for your support on May 6 for the Loveland Schools levy. We are so fortunate to live in a community that values strong schools and a community that understands the importance of educating and serving our students. Your support will allow us to continue the programs we have that help fulfill our mission of preparing our students for tomorrow, today.
Thank you to the countless volunteers who helped with the levy campaign. Everyone who stuffed envelopes, hosted coffees, called others, put up signs, ran a “5.6”K, walked door to door, wore buttons, honked horns and supported us. Each one of you helped to make our campaign a success. A special thanks to the Yes for Loveland Citizens for Loveland City Schools levy committee co-chairs Al Osgood and Deb Popp. We could not do it without your help!
Thank you to our newest voters who registered to vote and took part in our civic right and privilege by casting their ballots May 6 and helping to pass our levy. We hope that you will always take part in our democratic process by voting, assisting in a political campaign, or better yet, running for office. You are our future leaders.
During the past several months I have had an opportunity to meet and talk with many in the community regarding the levy. Now that the levy is over, I hope those conversations will continue on a regular basis and please understand that my door is always open, and I welcome the opportunity to talk regarding our great schools and our great community.
Thanks to your support we will be able to continue our current programs and operations. We will also be able to provide more support for technology for our teachers and students. This includes classes that will help our students to use technology to research and convey their ideas, as well as providing increased resources and classes for science, engineering, and mathematics. In the younger grades we will be able to provide more reading support and increase counseling services for our students. Together, we will continue to move the district forward.
Dedicated to the future of our students,
