Board of Education

The Upper Arlington Board of Education is legally responsible for the education of young people living within the School District. The Board’s primary responsibility is to set policy upon which all administrative action is based. The Board must:

  • Adopt policies for the operation of the school district

  • Approve adequate methods of program evaluation

  • Develop sound financial plans consistent with District needs and with community resources and expectations

Board of Education members are elected at large for four-year terms in staggered, odd-numbered years. Ohio legislation establishes a maximum amount for Board member compensation.

The Board employs the Superintendent to provide educational leadership and to implement policies and procedures through the administrative, teaching, and support staffs, and a Treasurer who serves as the District’s Chief Fiscal Officer.
