Superintendent

The superintendent of schools is the chief executive officer of the Board of Education and has charge of the administration of the schools under the direction of the Board of Education.  The job of the superintendent requires special knowledge, information, concepts, abilities and skills. The superintendent’s responsibilities apply in all areas of operation so the whole school system functions with balance and precision.

The superintendent keeps the Board of Education updated on instruction, budget, staff, student population, school plant and other district problems so members of the Board of Education may remain informed about school operation and problems. 

The superintendent also attends Board of Education meetings, prepares the agenda for all Board meetings, recommends consideration of new policies or changes to existing policies, evaluates school programs, recommends the hiring of personnel, reemployment, non-reemployment, termination, supervises the preparation and administration of the financial plan, recommends improvements and expansion of school facilities as needed, and informs the patrons and taxpayers of the district regarding school programs.

The associate superintendent serves the superintendent and works with all the departments, fulfilling many of the same duties required by the role of superintendent.

Last Day of School is May 22

Friday, May 22 will be the last day of school for the 2019-20 year. Additional time will be added to the school day for students in grades 6-8 beginning Monday, March 23, and continue through the end of the school year.

“Due to two days of school that were cancelled due to inclement weather, the district calendar had to be adjusted to meet the minimum state requirement of 1,080 hours of instruction,” Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said. “We wanted to adjust the calendar so students don’t have to come back after Memorial Day.

Modifications to the school schedule will be made as follows:

  1. Add one day at the end of the year, with Friday, May 22, being the last day of school;
  2. Elementary schools:  No change to the schedule. They have enough school hours to meet the required 1,080 hours.
  3. 6th & 7th Grade Center:  4 minutes added to the end of the school day effective Monday, March 23 (the day after spring break). 
  4. 8th Grade Center:  2 minutes added to the end of each day after March 23.
  5. Union High School Freshman Academy:  No change to current times.
  6. Union High School:  Friday, April 10 will be a “virtual day,” with students working on assignments from home.
