Four focus group sessions scheduled for March
Loveland, Ohio – As a follow up to the Building Tiger Nation Community Meeting on January 23, the Loveland City School District has announced four opportunities for focus groups to discuss and provide input around potential renovations of school facilities.
“The next step in our facilities master planning process is to explore and better understand what ‘renovations’ mean and what they should look like at Loveland,” said Superintendent Dr. Amy Crouse. “The focus groups will help us discern the priorities of our stakeholders and the vision they have as it relates to renovations and additional spaces for fine arts, STEM and athletics in current buildings.”
Community input is one important factor for the Loveland Board of Education as it moves toward a decision on a facility master plan. The final decision will be based on the architect’s evaluation of the facilities, the student experience data collected over the past year, the ongoing work of the Building Tiger Nation Finance Committee, Fallon Research survey data, and community input. Feedback by community members on the master plan options presented in January has been published and is available to view here: https://buildingtigernation.org/lcsd-presents-facility-master-plan-options-to-the-community/.
The four focus group sessions are scheduled as outlined below. According to a release from the District, “To ensure an adequate and effective discussion, the number of attendees will be limited.” If interested in attending, RSVP in advance to Julie Dunn, administrative assistant to the superintendent (firstname.lastname@example.org). Additional focus group sessions may be added if interest demands. The District also said that input and planning for any new buildings will come after a bond is passed.
