Our Tiger Story – The 2016-17 Quality Profile
Posted Monday, September 11, 2017
One-to-one technology for students grades five through 12; selection of innovative instructional grants to enhance classroom instruction; advanced placement exams for 39 percent of the junior class, and a 5-star rated preschool program – these are some of the highlights featured in Loveland’s 2016-17 Quality Profile, released September 11, and available at lovelandschools.org.
“Focus – that is the story the 2016-17 Quality Profile tells,” said Loveland Interim Superintendent Dr. Amy Crouse. “Our Board of Education supported every administrator, every teacher and every staff member in focusing on Tiger academic growth, innovation and care – and this publication is a reflection of that collective effort. From our investment in the instructional cycle learning materials, to our development of Loveland [x] – teacher innovation teams – we worked to create a world-class environment for our students. We are excited to present the strides we made.
“It is also the story of a district that embraces the complete student experience – exceptional arts, premier athletics and a close bond with the community in which we reside. Learning for our students certainly is not contained to the classroom.”
Now in its fifth year, the Loveland City School District was one of more than 20 progressive school districts throughout Ohio to first release this groundbreaking, robust companion to the state report card. Called state wide a Quality Profile, the report helps characterize the overall educational value of the district in areas that matter most to community members. This year 85 school districts throughout Ohio are releasing a Quality Profile, with accountability measures that outline a high-quality education that are not captured by the state report card – including: academics, arts, student leadership and activities, fiscal stewardship, parent and community involvement and student services.
“Ultimately - it’s all about our students – what we are doing to support their growth and development, and the amazing achievements they made during the school year,” said Crouse. “Our students are the stars of this publication, and from our award-winning food service professionals to our award-winning transportation department and all of the custodial, teaching and administrative professionals in between – we are proud of the collective focus we had to support them.”
The Quality Profile is sponsored by the Alliance for High Quality Education, a statewide education consortium that works to improve educational opportunities for students and to represent member districts on matters of educational policy and funding.
