Mariemont City Schools is starting the search for a new superintendent after the current head of the district accepted a similar position in a Columbus suburb.
Mariemont Superintendent Paul Imhoff will finish the 2012-2013 academic year in his current position before taking over as the head of the Upper Arlington City School District. Upper Arlington is a suburb of Columbus.
"We are grateful for Paul's leadership and collaboration and over the past six years, and we respect his career decisions as he challenges himself professionally," Peggy S. Braun, Mariemont City School District Board President said in a release. "Paul's talent to lead a school system is well known throughout the educational community. We realized that with all of his capabilities, skills and knowledge, coupled with a highly successful track record in Mariemont, one day, someone would recruit him away. Sadly, that day is here."
Imhoff served as superintendent of Mariemont schools for six years. In that time Imhoff oversaw the building and renovation of school buildings, an emphasis on savings, continued excellent state rating, and key improvements to the student technology plan, according to a release announcing Imhoff's leaving.
"We must now turn our attention to finding a new superintendent for our school district," Braun said.
The Mariemont Board of Education will convene soon to discuss the process for selection. Once the process is finalized, the information will be shared with the staff and community.
