New standards for education
Posted Thursday, August 22, 2013
The Loveland City School District has one mission for students: success. We strive to deliver excellent educational opportunities for our young Tigers each and every day. For 12 straight years you have seen an Ohio Department of Education report card that has ranked Loveland City Schools “Excellent” – placing our district as one of the top in Ohio.
We want to make you aware that the state has redesigned their annual report analyzing district performance. You will find the new version very different from reports released in the past – individual schools and districts will not receive an overall grade for the next two years as districts adjust to the revamped grading procedures. Each school instead receives a letter grade for nine measures.
“While the state report card has changed, our commitment to preparing students for tomorrow, today – remains unchanged,” said Chad Hilliker, Loveland City School District superintendent. “This new report card will give the administrative team an opportunity to see how we can be even better – and we are always looking for ways to continually improve. But, the state report card is a snapshot of school performance. Recently, we shared a debut report called the Quality Profile, with our community members to give them a more comprehensive view of the way we do business. This report is intended to be a complement to the state report card."
