Welcome to Union’s newest link in parent communication!  Union Parent Online allows parents to monitor grades from any computer with Internet access.

Parents of PreK-3rd Graders:  Since pre-kindergartners through third graders use checklists to measure progress, letter grades are not posted for that age group.

With the click of a mouse, parents can now check on the progress their student is making in any subject.  Union Parent OnLine is a password-protected link on the district’s website that allows them to monitor assignments, grades, schedules and attendance.

“We are excited to roll out this convenient way for parents to access important information that will assist in their children’s learning,” said Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler.  “The service covers all Union students, but since pre-kindergartners through third graders use checklists to measure progress, letter grades are not posted for that age group,” he explained.

Safeguards are in place so that only those authorized may have access.  Parents download an authorization form and must then sign it and take it to their student’s school. (If there are siblings in more than one Union school, authorization forms to access all of the siblings’ grades can be taken to any of those schools.)  Once parents show a photo I.D. and follow a few simple online steps, the access process is complete.

Start the process today!
