Please review the following information for selected Communications forms that have been posted for download purposes on the Union web site.
Public Records Request
Union Public Schools recognizes that the public has a right to be fully informed concerning its operations. The district strongly believes that informed citizens are vital to the successful functioning of the democratic process which the district desires to exemplify to its students.
In order to achieve these goals, the Board hereby states that all records of the district, except those designated as confidential in this policy statement, shall be open to any person for inspection, copying and/or mechanical reproduction during regular business hours. All persons requesting the right to inspect non-confidential records of the district shall be accorded prompt access to those records.
If you wish to view the complete policy regarding open records requests, please visit the Board of Education Board Policy section.
Publicity Opt Out Form
The Union Public School district uses student names, photographs, and other student information on our websites, social media pages, in news releases, student honor rolls, athletic programs, and in similar school-related or school partner-related publications. Union also provides student information such as names, photographs, and contact information to institutions of post-secondary education who desire to notify students of educational and scholarship opportunities; and to the armed services for recruitment purposes. The district will continue to identify students in connection with any of the district's programs or related activities in which students are enrolled or involved, for the purposes listed above and other similar educational purposes, unless it receives a completed form signed by the student's parent or legal guardian or by the student, if 18 or older.
Once the form is completed, a copy should be kept at the school site and another should be sent to the Communications Department via email or district mail.
