Loveland Superintendent Chad Hilliker accepts new position
The Loveland City School District has announced that Chad Hilliker, who has served as Loveland Schools superintendent, has accepted an assistant superintendent position at the Hamilton County Educational Services Center (ESC). Hilliker will remain as superintendent of the Loveland City School District until July 31, 2017.
“The privilege of serving the students, staff, teachers, administrators and Board of Education the past four years as superintendent has been mine,” said Hilliker. “I have been blessed. Loveland is and has been my home the past 26 years; it is truly a wonderful community. I want to offer a sincere and special thank you to every member of the Tiger Family – and especially the Loveland Board of Education for believing in my ability to lead and giving me this outstanding opportunity.
“I am proud of the incredible strides our organization has made the past four years, and I have complete confidence the excellent work we have started will only continue; Loveland is uniquely Tiger and a true destination school district for families.”
Hilliker has served as superintendent of the Loveland City School District since May 1, 2013. He is an educator with 25 years of experience, serving students as an elementary teacher, high school coach, middle school assistant principal, intermediate principal and assistant superintendent of human resources. Mr. Hilliker worked in Indian Hill Schools from 1991 – 2003 before joining the Tiger Team. He earned his Bachelor of Science from The Ohio State University in 1991 and his Masters of Educational Administration from Xavier University in 1994.
“We are extremely pleased with the way the district has advanced under the leadership of Mr. Hilliker,” said Loveland Board of Education President Dave Blumberg. “Our district is well positioned to continue advancing our three big goals of Tiger academic growth, Tiger innovation and Tiger care. We offer Mr. Hilliker a sincere thank you for bringing us to this point, and we are excited about the future.
“The Board has planned a special meeting for Monday, May 22, to consider the employment of our next educational leader; we have no doubt that we will continue pushing forward to create the right environment to prepare our students for tomorrow, today.”
“The strength of the administrative team lies in the dedication to the complete student experience, and that laser focus does not end with my exit,” said Hilliker. “The Loveland school community remains in capable hands, and I will continue to support the district mission in my new role as a parent in the community.”
