All adult classes are taught by highly experienced Oklahoma certified teachers.  In addition to UALC, other class locations can be found throughout the Tulsa metro area, Claremore, Muskogee, Owasso, and Pryor.

Adult Learning CenterAdult Basic Education

GED and HiSET Preparation 

Classes are provided for adults who are no longer attending high school and need basic skills instruction in reading, writing, math, and life skills.

GED and Industry Certification Exams

Passing the General Educational Development (GED) or HiSET test qualifies adults to receive a high school equialency diploma issued by the State of Oklahoma and participate in our UALC graduation ceremony. Exams are available on paper or computer. We also offer certification exams for various fields such as IT, health, and education through our Pearson VUE testing center.

English as a Second Language

English as a Second Language (ESL) classes provide instruction to non-English speaking adults.  Students learn communication and assimilation skills in order to be productive citizens.

Family Literacy

Family Literacy classes offer ABE and ESL to parents along with parent/child interaction time.  By learning together as a family, the program reinforces life skills that parents and children need to succeed.

Workplace Literacy

These classes are designed specifically to teach ABE or ESL to employees in order to achieve high performance work and product quality.  Union’s instruction staff will identify tasks important to the employer and make those tasks the focus of basic skills.

Administrative Changes Announced

Scott Pennington named director of new Hope – Guidance – Social and Emotional Learning Department;   Clayton Hucke named interim 7th Grade Principal

Dear Union Parents and Guardians: 

I am excited to announce that Mr. Scott Pennington, principal at the Union 6th & 7th Grade Center, has been asked to lead a new department within Teaching and Learning entitled Hope – Guidance – Social and Emotional Learning. As you know, we are in the second year of our five-year district strategic plan. One of the elements of this plan is Union’s Learning Model that focuses on literacy, cognitive capacity, engagement, and social and emotional learning.

As we continuously evaluate our data, and hear from teachers and our site leaders, there continues to be a dominant narrative that more must be done to address the social and emotional development of our students. Collectively speaking, our teachers continue to do amazing work in providing dynamic learning experiences for our students. It is now time for us to articulate a tiered approach to addressing unwanted student behaviors and student trauma – at all grade levels – while also fostering greater hope and confidence in our students’ lives. The idea is that we will be more proactive in our efforts, providing counseling and guidance to address the social, emotional, and academic needs of our students. I firmly believe this will make a positive difference in our students’ lives and in the learning culture of our buildings.

Mr. Pennington’s work as a special education teacher, assistant principal, and principal make him uniquely qualified to lead in this new position. In addition to this change, I am also pleased to announce that Mr. Clay Hucke, assistant principal at Union High School, has been asked to serve as an interim principal at the Sixth & Seventh Grade Center. Mr. Hucke has done an outstanding job at the high school and he looks forward to serving the students, staff, and parents at this site.

Please join me in congratulating Mr. Pennington and Mr. Hucke. These moves will become effective January 1, 2020.

Respectfully,

Kirt Hartzler, Ed.D.
Superintendent
