As you know, Union’s website has been down for a week.  We were informed late last night by our local provider that our website is unrecoverable past October 2017.  Our top priorities have been restoring “Back to School” information and the employment section of the website, and those have been largely completed.  We apologize for the inconvenience, and will restore other critical sections of the website as soon as possible.  Thank you!

IT Solution Center - 918-357-6169

The Technology Department oversees all aspects relating to technology in the District, including computers, software, networking, and planning. The Information Technology side handles hardwork and networking issues while the Instructional Technology side address software needs, particular those for teachers and students - although due to the nature of the continual changes in technology, duties may overlap. The directors work together with the Superintendent to deliver technlogy services to Union Public Schools.

The department manages the IT Solution Center, which answers employee computers questions and remedies problems either in person or through remote network connections. The department also works closely with the Communications Department to maintain the web site. 

Staff

Technology staff includes District level staff, the IT Solution Center staff and Site Computer Technicians that support the individual school sites.

Network

Union’s LAN (Local Area Network) runs on 10/100/1000 MB Ethernet connections. Union’s 100 MB point to point WAN (Wide Area Network) connects each school site with a Microwave system with the exception of McAuliffe Elementary, Grove Elementary and the Alternative School, which are connected by direct fiber to another school and then to the WAN. 

Standards

Union provides the latest models of Dell computers for the teacher, staff and student use. These computers are updated every 4 years as their warranties expire. Each teacher is provided with a personal printer as well as access to networked printers at each site.

Computer and Internet Use Agreements

Information Technology requires an Internet and computer use agreement be signed by students, their parents and employees. It reminds everyone the importance of prudent Internet use.
