Imhoff named UA schools superintendent


The Upper Arlington Board of Education announced today, Feb. 18, it will hire Paul W. Imhoff as the district’s next superintendent.

Imhoff taught language arts at Pickerington Junior High early in his career and has been superintendent at Mariemont City Schools in Cincinnati since 2007.

District leaders received 21 applications for the position and chose Imhoff and two other finalists - Paul Craft, superintendent at Delaware City Schools and Kyle Ramey, director of instructional services at Kettering City Schools - for interviews and meetings with various focus groups last week.

“Paul brings an impressive list of credentials and a proven track record of success to our district,” board President Robert Arkin said.

Board members are expected to approve Imhoff’s contract, which includes an annual bse salary of $165,000, at a meeting Feb. 19.

“I am both humbled and honored to lead the Upper Arlington school district, as I grew up in central Ohio and have always been impressed with Upper Arlington’s exceptional reputation for excellence,” Imhoff said.

Imhoff will begin his duties on July 1, after the retirement of current Superintendent Jeffrey Weaver June 30.
