Career Connect FAQs

Union Public SchoolsHow often will students be on-site?

Student interns may report daily or twice a week for a 1.5-hour block, depending on the company’s needs and student schedules.

Is there a minimum number of students we are required to take?

No. We have had some partners start with 2-3 students, and others
who accommodate 18-20 students.

Who provides transportation?

In most cases, the students drive. Union Public Schools has provided buses or arranged for alternate transportation in some instances. Partner companies have also offset transportation costs by donating gas cards. One partner even purchased a 15-passenger van.

Do I have to pay the students?

No. We have some partner companies who choose to pay an hourly wage, but the majority of our partners do not pay students. It is considered a job shadowing experience.

Are student interns covered by insurance?

Yes, Junior Achievement covers students with a $1 million liability policy.

What if a student is not working out?

If a student is not a good fit, you may contact the Career Connect office. The arrangement must be mutually beneficial for the student and the company.

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.
