Our Mission

To support Union Public Schools, its vision and the students it serves.
 
The Union Schools Education Foundation is an exclusively educational and charitable, non-profit corporation. Separate and apart from Union Public Schools, the Foundation maintains its own integrity while working closely with the District. Tax-exempt donations from individuals, corporations and foundations are used solely for the benefit of our students and teachers for projects that would otherwise go unfunded.

The Union Schools Education Foundation was organized in 1991 by Union District patrons and administrators who were dedicated to making investments in education and enhancing the quality of life in our community and state.

Why does Union need a Foundation?

In recent years, public funding for Union Public Schools has been enough to cover the basics: salaries, building costs and some classroom supplies. What's lost? The ability to implement innovative programs and ideas from teachers, parents and students due to lack of funding. That's why your help is so important. Support of the Foundation is an investment in our children, our schools and our community.

While Union Public Schools depends on public funding for basic district operations, implementing innovative programs and ideas often require additional resources. The Foundation is instrumental in providing private contributions and funding for creative programs as well as recognition for our teachers and their impact on students.

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.
