Union Design Process

Our STEM Strategic Plan challenges us to “Emphasize inquiry, project-based learning and performance tasks”.  To achieve this goal and provide a framework to guide all thinking, we developed a common design process.  This process was synthesized from numerous research-validated engineering and scientific processes.  The structure of our design process allows for planning, implementation, and revision of ideas as you set out to solve a problem.  It has common language that is easily interpreted from early childhood to post-secondary.  Our design process will be used and followed in meetings, collaboration, classroom lessons, and beyond.

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.
