Talking with Paul Imhoff, Superintendent of the Upper Arlington City Schools
Today, Carole speaks with Paul Imhoff about creating community based, living strategic plans that transform school districts. 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.

Mr. Imhoff has 18 years of administrative experience in public education, including six years as the superintendent of Mariemont City Schools and four years as the assistant superintendent in Madeira City Schools, both high-achieving districts in the Cincinnati area. Prior to moving into administrative roles, he spent 7 years teaching high school English and junior high language arts and reading.
“If we don’t set goals, we certainly aren’t going to accomplish them. − Paul Imhoff”
