Secondary Counseling Services

Our Mission

The mission of Union Public School’s counseling program is to help students realize their academic potential by providing personal and social support in addition to college and career planning. The program promotes a culture of inclusiveness and equality while encouraging personal growth so that all students are empowered to be responsible and productive members of society. Counselors strive to remove barriers to student learning by collaborating with families, educators and the community in order to graduate 100% of our students, college and/or career ready.

Role of the School Counselor

School counselors are educators uniquely trained in child and adolescent development, learning strategies, self-management and social skills who understand and promote success for today’s diverse students. Counselors provide education, prevention and intervention activities which are integrated into all aspects of students’ lives. Counselors work with students to help develop their knowledge, attitudes and skills for academic, career and personal/ social development, which serve as the foundation for future success.

Accessing the School Counselor

Parents, students, school staff and administration may submit a referral regarding personal, social or academic concerns at any time. Parents should call/e-mail to schedule an appointment. Students may sign up to see their counselor in their respective offices. Matters of urgency will be given priority.

Counselor Contact

In order to personalize the educational experience of all students, counselors and administrators will follow each graduating class, progressing from 6th to 7th grade, 8th to 9th grade and 10th through 12th grade. Individual Ccunselors and contact information are located on the main web page for each school.

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.
