The Operations Department includes the grounds, maintenance, and custodial departments for the school district.  More than 100 custodial employees in the district are charged with cleaning and maintaining buildings. Each of the school sites are provided with a certified building engineer and custodial staffing that is appropriate to the square footage of the building. The grounds department maintains the outside grounds for all of the facilities.

Maintenance, Custodial & Grounds

The Maintenance Department was comprised of 15 specialists and 23 building engineers who maintained equipment and ensured that all district facilities were running smoothly. During the year, employees completed 10,000 work orders and monthly preventative maintenance orders.  Licensed specialists included a locksmith, two plumbers, two electricians, five HVAC technicians, two electronics technicians, two carpenters, and a painter; and each school site had at least one licensed building engineer.  The High School campus, including the UMAC, had five building engineers because of its size and large volume of day, night, and weekend activities.  The district received a $67,235.00 rebate check from PSO for participating in a summer energy savings program and was honored with an award for saving the most energy.

The Custodial Department had 110 full- and part-time employees including 20 lead custodian supervisors.  Custodial staff members, collectively, cleaned and maintained 3,323,544 sq. ft. of building space. 

The Grounds Department’s 13 employees maintained more than 425 acres of district property at 23 different sites.  In addition to regular grounds maintenance, the grounds crew handled playground maintenance, small asphalt and concrete repairs, signage, snow removal, preparation and clean up for events, and worked with the warehouse during large moves.

United Way Campaign

Once again, September will be a “Month of Giving” at Union Public Schools. We appreciate the generosity of Union students, families, teachers and staff as we raise funds for the 59 partner agencies of the Tulsa Area United Way. Thank you for joining in the fun as we support the United Way’s mission of uniting people and resources to improve lives and build a stronger community.

September is School Attendance Awareness Month

School spirit is a commitment. It requires that you be here, body and soul. Without a strong base, the pyramid falls apart. It’s the same in life. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences cancel your performance. Absence is the spirit-killer. A crowd-pleasing routine is more than just showing up . . . but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU

New website

Union Public Schools has a new website! We are pleased to work with our new provider Gabbart Communications. While it is a brand-new website, we have purposely designed it to be familiar. So most items will be found in the places in which you are accustomed to finding them. We are continuing to refine the site and more features, such as video, are coming. If you have a comment, please email us.
