Superintendent Paul Imhoff, Ed.D.

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.

During Tuesday night’s meeting, the Board of Education approved a resolution regarding the signage of the private toilet room bathroom design in the new and renovated buildings. Before I get into the details of the resolution, let me offer a reminder about some of the background information.

Superintendent's Notes: Summer planning; construction and Legacy updates

We are quickly approaching the end of the 2020-2021 school year, and we are incredibly excited to safely celebrate those important end-of-year milestones in person with our students. 

Summer and 2021-2022 planning

As this school year comes to a close, we are planning for the future - and the additional supports our students might need in the areas of academics and well-being.

We’re starting by building on and expanding existing summer offerings such as our Summer Reading program for elementary students, Summer Academy for K-12 students, and immediate credit recovery for high school students. We will also have additional offerings, with a focus on well-being and core academic subjects, for students at the elementary and secondary levels. Many more details will be coming soon for families.

District is looking ahead to provide support students need

We’re quickly approaching the end of the 2020-2021 school year - and what a journey it has been! 

Since the beginning of March, our school-based students have been back together for all-in learning. This is what we had been planning for - and looking forward to - since the summer of 2020, when we launched our Responsible Restart Plan. We also have students learning in the UA Online Academy for the final weeks of the year. We are incredibly excited to safely celebrate all of those important end-of-year milestones ahead with all of our students.

Well-being of students, staff even more important this school year

As 2020 comes to a close, we can safely say that this is a year unlike any other we have experienced before. Our Upper Arlington Schools staff, students and families are continuing to show flexibility as we face new challenges in this pandemic.

I am truly amazed by everything the families in our community - parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and other friends and loved ones - are doing to support the students they love. And I continue to be in awe of our incredible staff as they rise to the challenge of different models for teaching, learning and operating the vital services for the students in our school district.

Strategic priorities remain focus in different learning modes

As we enter the final month of 2020, we can safely say that this is a year unlike any other we have experienced before.  

In late November, the Board of Education voted to move to enhanced distance learning between Thanksgiving and winter breaks.  The decision was based upon many factors, including our local and county-wide health data.  In addition, the Board considered the best way to provide educational continuity during a time of significant staffing concerns and a growing number of students and staff out of school due to isolation and quarantine.  Our hope is to welcome students back into our buildings in our hybrid learning model in January, and our goal is to have all students back in school full time as soon as it is safe to do so.
