Strategic Plan

Upper Arlington Schools is embarking on an ambitious strategic planning process that draws from the innovative and collaborative vision of students, staff, parents/guardians and community members for the future of education in Upper Arlington.

The strategic planning process, guided by design principles from the Board of Education, places an emphasis on community involvement and data-driven decision-making. The process will be divided into four stages, with a goal of adopting a new strategic plan by December 2024. 

The first phase — the design phase — began with the “Dr. Hunt’s UAdventure” listening tour launched in the fall. Since then, Dr. Hunt has gathered feedback from nearly 1,400 students, staff members, parents/guardians and community members. That feedback — along with other key data points including feedback from the superintendent search process in 2022, the Listen Learn Lead community engagement sessions last spring and the equity audit conducted by Insight Education — has helped inform the development of the priority areas for the future:

Excellence and innovation in …

Engaged learning

Well-being and belonging

Connection and communication

During the second phase of the process — the discovery phase — inquiry teams made up of students, staff members, parents/guardians and community experts will delve into the specific priority areas and identify recommendations and goals for each priority area. 

Throughout the strategic planning process, the district will continue to move forward with the priorities identified in the current 2019-2024 Strategic Plan.

Community Opportunities

This spring, Dr. Hunt will offer opportunities for stakeholders to learn more about the process through Coffee & Conversation sessions and a Listen Learn Lead community engagement session to gather feedback on the work to date.
