The Loveland City School District has announced the search for the permanent superintendent of the progressive, vibrant school district is complete; in a unanimous vote the Loveland Board of Education made official their selection of Dr. Amy Crouse as the new educational leader at the March 15 Special Meeting.
“The Board of Education, working with the Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA), found the best of the best candidates to interview, and sought feedback from the administrative team, the Tiger staff and the Loveland community before making this decision; we feel confident in our choice to name Dr. Amy Crouse as our new superintendent,” said Loveland Board of Education President Art Jarvis. “During her tenure as interim superintendent, Dr. Crouse has worked tirelessly to ensure the district continued to focus efforts on enhancing the experience for our students. We know she is the perfect leader to push forward our key initiatives of Tiger academic growth, Tiger innovation and Tiger care.”
Dr. Amy Crouse joined the Tiger Family as the assistant superintendent of teaching and learning in August of 2014; she came to the district as a seasoned administrator with 21 years of service to students on her resume. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Indiana University in elementary education in 1990, her master’s in education administration from the University of Cincinnati (UC) in 1997, and her doctorate of education from UC in 2012, where she served as an adjunct professor in educational leadership in 1998, 2000, and 2010-2014. She began serving students as a teacher in 1993 at schools in Illinois, then North Carolina, before taking an administrative role as an assistant principal for West Clermont Local Schools in Cincinnati (1997) and then principal for that same district (1999). She moved to the Princeton City School District to serve as curriculum coordinator (2004), director of curriculum and instruction (2008) and served that district as associate superintendent (2012-2014).
In addition, Dr. Crouse has been a featured conference presenter and contributing author to multiple publications.
“It is humbling to have the privilege to serve my Tiger Family in this role,” said Crouse. “With the full support of the Board of Education, we are laying the ground work right now for advancements in the student experience that will game-change the way this district does business, and I couldn’t be more excited to continue to collaborate with our Tiger staff and our Loveland community to make it happen. It is an exciting time to be a Tiger!”
“Dr. Crouse is a proven educational leader,” said Jarvis. “Her accomplishments within our district are already outstanding – from developing a strategic plan to include our classroom educational leaders in researching and investing in the best teaching tools for our students, to bringing innovative learning to our classrooms, to growing our academic programs with a partnership with the University of Cincinnati just this year – she has already enhanced our student experience. The Board of Education is excited to support her leadership in accomplishing our vision.”
