Superintendent's Notes from Dr. Jenney

District to remain focused on challenging, supporting our students during leadership transition

Over the past 10 years, I have been honored to serve the students, staff and families of the Upper Arlington Schools and to work alongside Dr. Paul Imhoff, most recently as the associate superintendent for human resources and operations. As Dr. Imhoff retires as the superintendent of Upper Arlington Schools and moves on to his next chapter, I want to share my deepest gratitude for his service over the past decade. Thanks to his leadership, Upper Arlington continues to be a lighthouse school district in the state of Ohio and across the nation — setting the standard in academic achievement and success for our students.

It is truly my honor to step into the role as interim superintendent for the next several months and to be the first woman to serve as the leader of the Upper Arlington Schools. I am grateful for this opportunity and the support of the Board of Education. I am prepared to serve in this capacity to ensure a seamless transition to our next superintendent, and I then plan to retire at the end of July 2023 after more than three decades in public education.
