State of the Schools
The State of the Schools is an annual event that brings together students, staff, families and community members for an update on the district's commitments and a look at its vision for the future. The first State of the Schools was held in February of 2015 at Upper Arlington High School.
The fourth-annual State of the Schools took place on Monday, February 5, 2018. This evening was an opportunity for community members, families and students to learn more about Upper Arlington Schools as the district celebrates its centennial year and prepares for the next 100 years. The event featured presentations from the superintendent and the treasurer/CFO as well as performances and displays by students and staff and a Gallery of Grants funded by the Upper Arlington Education Foundation.
