What does it have to do with Building Tiger Nation?
On Wednesday, September 26, a group of parents, teachers, district staff and administrators met to start outlining Loveland’s “Portrait of a Tiger.” This initial Student Experience meeting was dedicated to sharing information and beginning the process of identifying the qualities and skills our community wishes for our students to have as they leave Loveland High School.
“This is important work that we have been doing and will continue to do, but right now we have a unique opportunity to explore how our mission for Tiger learning and growth ties into the larger scheme of planning the future of our school facilities,” says Andrea Conner, Director of Teaching and Learning. “The ideas generated in this meeting, and those that will be brought up in meetings over the next couple of months, allow us to hone in on what skills and opportunities we believe all students should have for the future.”
The presentation (see below) centered around thinking differently about education, and how to prepare students for life after high school and the rapidly changing workforce that awaits them. Through various interactive elements, the ideas and priorities of the audience were captured throughout the meeting.
“With the help of technology, we were able to ask questions and get direct feedback on what is important to our stakeholders as it relates to the experience they want their student to have,” said David Knapp, Director of Technology and Innovation. “This, along with the feedback we’ll receive in our upcoming meetings with community members, staff in all our buildings, and from the students themselves, will be collected systematically so that we can identify common themes and priorities.”
The Loveland community is invited to attend the next Student Experience meeting on Thursday, October 11 (6:00-7:30 p.m.) in the Loveland Intermediate/Middle School Media Center. (This meeting will also be held on October 16, 10:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the same location.)
