About the Superintendent
Paul Imhoff joined Upper Arlington Schools as superintendent in July 2013 and says he cannot imagine a better place to work and raise a family.
One of the major accomplishments during his time in Upper Arlington has been leading the effort to reinvent the strategic planning process for the district. The new hybrid planning process incorporated the best from private-sector and public-sector models and resulted in a focused, results-oriented plan with measurable goals.
