Changes to State Testing

In 2016, Oklahoma began teaching more comprehensive academic standards, which required new, more complex assessments to measure them. The new assessments were given to students in spring 2017, and test results will be released in late fall 2017.

Union Public Schools fully supports Oklahoma’s new standards, as they are designed to help students become more creative thinkers and problem-solvers, rather than simply memorize information. The new tests are designed to more accurately measure a student’s academic progress and readiness for college and career.

Why did Oklahoma change academic standards?  Read here for information. 

Note:  This year’s test scores will be dramatically different from previous years, and are not comparable.  Please see Superintendent Dr. Kirk Hartzler’s letter  to provide context for your child’s test results. This year – 2017 – is a total “reset,” helping to establish a baseline measurement for college and career readiness going forward.

At-Home Assignments

School buildings will remain closed, but Union is committed to resuming your student’s learning.  Our intent is to provide a positive academic experience for students without overwhelming parents, and to engage all populations of students, even those who may not have access to the latest technology at home.

At-Home Assignments will be posted on this page by Friday evening of each week through May 15.

See March 31 letter for further explanation.
