Superintendent, Paul Imhoff
My family and I became part of the Upper Arlington family in 2013, and we quickly learned what has drawn people to this special place for so many years. It's more than the tree-lined streets and beautiful parks - it's a deep sense of community pride and cooperation.
While I am proud to be a member of this great community and a parent in this fantastic school district, I am humbled to serve as its superintendent. It is an honor to work with this fine group of educators as they make a positive impact in the lives of our students. I am invigorated by the thoughts of what is yet to come. Over the next few years, we will be laying the groundwork to build upon the district's tradition of excellence and reach even greater levels of achievement and opportunity for all students.
If you have any ideas or questions about our schools, please feel free to contact me by phone or email.
Quality Profile Illustrates Commitment to Accountability
Today we are proud to release the first annual Upper Arlington Quality Profile. This document demonstrates our commitment to a level of accountability that is far greater than the annual state report card, which is largely dependent on the scores of government tests. Our community has a long history of demanding high quality educational experiences and financial stewardship, and our schools eagerly embrace the challenge of meeting and exceeding those expectations.
This Quality Profile was developed as a part of our innovative new strategic planning process that combined the focus of a private-sector model with the widespread outreach of a traditional public sector model. A committee of community members and educators worked tirelessly to develop a prototype Quality Profile that was released for community feedback in February. The document released today is the result of the committee’s efforts and the valuable feedback provided by our community. Fine-tuning the Quality Profile has been a coordinated effort to engage the community and staff to measure what matters most for our students.
Our history as a national leader in education and our commitment to continue this legacy demands a strong accountability system. Please take the time to review our Quality Profile and notice it has been organized around the five goals of our strategic plan: performance, personalization, efficiency, accountability, and ownership. Each indicator in the QP is explained and comparative data is offered wherever possible. In addition, we explain our future goal for each area that represents our commitment to continuous improvement.
The Upper Arlington Schools set the standard for excellence in education and we are focused on our vision of Uniquely Accomplished Students Prepared to Serve, Lead, and Succeed. Enjoy reviewing the Quality Profile and provide us your feedback by visiting www.uaschools.org/
