Superintendent's Message

Welcome to Big Horn County School District #2. The community of Lovell takes pride in a rich tradition of excellence in academics, the fine and performing arts, and athletics. Teachers and staff work hard to provide a nurturing and effective instructional environment designed to maximize the potential of every student. In BGH2 we have great kids and supportive families. It is our mission to provide every student with the knowledge and skills necessary to become ethical, responsible, productive citizens and life-long learners.

In BGH2 our teachers and other professional staff members are committed to working together on high performing collaborative teams. We use the Professional Learning Communities (PLC) framework to ensure that all students learn essential knowledge, skills, and dispositions. Our instructional framework is designed around the four critical questions of PLCs. They are:

  1. What do we expect every student to learn?
  2. How will we know when each student has learned the essential knowledge and skills?
  3. How will we respond when some students do not learn?
  4. How will we extend and enrich the learning for students who are already proficient?


We know that education is critical to the future of our students and we believe that we can make a difference in the lives of every child. We accept learning as the fundamental purpose of our schools and, therefore, are willing to examine all practices in light of their impact on student learning. Finally, we believe that every student can learn at high levels when provided with effective instruction from a caring teacher.


As Superintendent of Lovell Schools, I am always eager to work with the community and our dedicated teachers and staff. Please feel welcome to contact me if you have questions, ideas, or concerns relating to our district operations or our educational programs. Together, we will continue to provide our children with a world-class education.
