Loveland City Schools to hold focus group sessions for superintendent search
Posted Thursday, September 28, 2017
Please see the below update from Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA) regarding next steps in the search for Loveland’s next superintendent:
The Loveland City School District’s Board of Education is in the process of searching for a new school superintendent. The vacancy is the result of the resignation of Chad Hilliker, that was effective on July 31, 2017. At that time, Dr. Amy Crouse took over as interim superintendent for the district, and she continues to lead in that capacity. The Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA) is assisting the Board with the search. The Board has scheduled a Community and Staff Listening Session for OSBA consultant Steve Horton to meet with staff and community members to review the hiring process and receive input on Oct. 18, 2017, from 7 p.m. - 8 p.m. at the Loveland Intermediate School Media Center, 757 S. Lebanon Road, Loveland, Ohio 45140.
The conversation will focus on the following three topics:
(1) Major issues facing the district for the next three to five years;
(2) Performance expectations for the next superintendent; and
(3) Personal and professional qualities to be sought in the next superintendent.
Horton will provide the Board of Education with a detailed report of the conversation which will help the board to develop a detailed profile of the ideal candidate, to enhance their understanding of perceived future challenges and opportunities facing the district and to assist them in setting specific criteria for the screening, selection and evaluation of candidates.
