Building Tiger Nation

The need is real, and the time is now.

Welcome to the development of our Facility Master Plan!

WHY BUILDING TIGER NATION?

We are in the midst of a years-long process of community engagement to assess the current and future school facility needs. Our school buildings are important for ensuring a high quality of education and a safe learning environment for our students and staff.

Students in trailers, teachers on carts – that is probably not the vision you have of the Loveland City School District, but that is the reality we face.

BACKGROUND

1998 – That was the last time our facilities had a full assessment, and the advancements in building security and use of educational spaces for learning have made dramatic changes during the last 20 years…while our classrooms have not.

2016-2017 School Year: Teachers, staff, administrators and the Loveland City School Board put laser focus on three key areas to make strides in Preparing our Student for Tomorrow, Today: academic growth, classroom innovation and Tiger care. A group of Loveland residents and parents joined the “Destination Loveland Task Force” and started diving deep into what the student experience in Loveland should look like, the future needs of our facilities and a financial plan to reach our goals.

Now: A task force comprised of administrators, staff, students, parents, and business and community leaders is working with a master planning firm to help advance the goals of Tiger Nation. And we need your input as well! This is your one-stop-shop for the most up-to-date information about the process, which includes three phases:

18-19 EXPECTATIONS

EVERY TIGER WILL DEMONSTRATE PERSONAL ACADEMIC GROWTH.

Through real-world personalized learning opportunities, we will chart a clear path to academic success for students to evolve as ferocious learners, always striving to achieve at the highest level of excellence for themselves and for others. Every Tiger will embrace challenges, try new strategies, collaborate with others, seize their learning, impact their community, and explore their curiosities to enrich their learning experience.

EVERY TIGER WILL BE CARED FOR AND SUPPORTED.

We will meet the care, welfare, safety, and security needs of every Tiger to ensure access and participation. Every Tiger will build strength in the face of life’s challenges. Every Tiger will believe in his or her ability to succeed. At every turn, and in every setting, we will guide and support every Tiger in his or her journey towards independence.

EVERY TIGER WILL EXPERIENCE AN INNOVATIVE EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT.

We will embrace new ideas and perspectives, prioritize creation over consumption, and challenge every Tiger to be a passionate learner who seeks out new ways of solving complex challenges. We believe that innovation starts with empathy. Collaboration among staff, community and local partners, builds trust and encourages risk taking which sparks our thinking and dares us to reimagine traditional teaching and learning norms.

LISTEN, LEAD, LEVERAGE.

Under the direction of the Superintendent the district will maintain open communication with all stakeholders to lead and influence education centered conversation, and engage the Tiger Family in a meaningful exchange of ideas.

THE MAJORITY OF FUNDING WILL BE INVESTED IN CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION

Consistent ability to operate in a fiscally conservative manner while maintaining excellence – it’s what we do year after year, and it’s part of what makes the Loveland City School District a destination for families. It takes thoughtful planning from the classroom level all the way to the Board of Education to ensure this happens, and the goal is always to ensure that the majority of funding is invested on classroom instruction.
