The Loveland School District – under the leadership of Superintendent Dr. John Marschhausen and Treasurer Brett Griffith – presented the 2012 State of the Schools address Thursday, Nov. 8, in the Loveland Middle School auditorium. The presentation included results from a citizen satisfaction survey conducted by Fallon Research, a recap of the district’s current financial condition, and a vision for the academic direction of the district.
“Our children are blessed to live in a community that provides exceptional learning opportunities,” said Marschhausen. “The true partnership between parents, teachers, extended families, our faith community, and youth organizations all demonstrate the investment and commitment to developing the whole child.”
Marschhausen unveiled a plan for advancing education in the district by incorporating blended learning and cutting-edge assessment testing.
“We will bring blended learning – the marriage of technology and instructional talent – to Loveland’s secondary students,” said Marschhausen. “Computers don’t replace our rock star teachers; computers provide these instructional leaders a larger platform on which to perform efficiently, effectively and with personalized instruction. This is a student-centered approach to learning that allows the district to utilize each teacher’s skills, talents and assets to the fullest.”
For those interested, a video of the complete presentation is available for viewing (see link below).
In a continued effort to understand the education needs of the community, the district currently has two surveys available for parents and students to utilize. These surveys will be available on the district website through December 14 (links included below).
Dr. Marschhausen also plans to host a series of “School House” meetings to offer the public an opportunity to get questions answered (dates and locations are listed below). In addition, Marschhausen will participate in a “Java Week” prior to Thanksgiving – setting up at Starbucks to chat with Loveland residents about the state of the district.
