2014-2021 – UA Central Office Administrative Team Increased Dramatically

From 2014-2021, while the UA Schools Administrative Team expanded and overhead soared, the learning of UA students decreased dramatically. Our Superintendent and School Board put the emphasis on administrators. 

In 2013, Upper Arlington had one Associate Superintendent.  Now there are 3 positions at that level.  The DEI Executive Director reports directly to the Superintendent and is on the same level as the Associate Superintendents on the Organizational Chart.  In addition, Administrative Assistants have been hired for each of those positions.  At the same time, rankings have plummeted.
