REACH Program

The REACH Program was created in 2018 as part of a two-year grant from the George Kaiser Family Foundation that will allow programming started under the defunct Carrera Program to continue through the 2019-2020 school year.

Union discontinued the Carrera Program at the end of the 2017-2018 school year after the loss of substantial federal grants. 

Given the difficult state and federal funding outlook, Union designed the REACH program with a smaller budget that will continue to support students, who were enrolled in the fomer program, from eighth through 12th grades.

Union pulled elements from the Carrera experience including mental health services, sex education, and kept many staff in similar roles. The REACH program was offered to all students, who were enrolled in the Carrera Program. Letters were sent to families explaining changes in March 2018

Native American Heritage Month

Native American Heritage Month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.
