Supplier Information and Registration

Qualified and responsible suppliers are an important, valued and necessary resource for maintaining an effective teaching and learning environment here at Union Public Schools.  
Before a supplier can do business with the school district, the supplier must register with the District’s Purchasing and Accounting Departments. 

To be considered, a prospective supplier must: 

  • Complete and submit a signed Supplier Application / Master Memorandum of Understanding
  • Agree to accept the terms and conditions of the supplier registration form
  • Agree to accept school district purchase orders
  • Agree to payment terms of 45 days without penalty of interest or late fees
  • Agree to accept the terms and conditions of the school district’s purchase order

Suppliers do not need to submit multiple applications.  All applications will be reviewed by the Accounting and Purchasing Departments. Supplier Registration and Commodity Bid Listing may be emailed to [email protected] or faxed to 918-357-6066. 

Potential suppliers who have submitted a commodity bid list sheet with their supplier application will be added to the Purchasing Department’s bidders’ database.  Submission and acceptance of a supplier’s application is not a guarantee of future business or bid award.

Sex offenders and violent offenders not permitted to work on school premises.

In order to do business with the district, suppliers must agree to comply with provisions of Oklahoma Statutes, Title 57 § 589 and Title 70 § 6-101.48.  Suppliers must agree not to knowingly or willfully permit any employee to work with or provide services to children or work on school premises if said employee or person is registered pursuant to the Oklahoma Sex Offenders Registration Act or the Mary Rippy Violent Crime Offenders Registration Act. 

Supplier compliance with these laws shall be evidenced by signing the Supplier Application or accepting and fulfilling a school district purchase order. 

Purchase orders

All school district purchase transactions will be conducted through the issuance of a Union Public Schools centrally processed and issued purchase order. Suppliers should not accept and process orders without obtaining the “Vendor” copy of the purchase order.

Administrative Changes Announced

Scott Pennington named director of new Hope – Guidance – Social and Emotional Learning Department;   Clayton Hucke named interim 7th Grade Principal

Dear Union Parents and Guardians: 

I am excited to announce that Mr. Scott Pennington, principal at the Union 6th & 7th Grade Center, has been asked to lead a new department within Teaching and Learning entitled Hope – Guidance – Social and Emotional Learning. As you know, we are in the second year of our five-year district strategic plan. One of the elements of this plan is Union’s Learning Model that focuses on literacy, cognitive capacity, engagement, and social and emotional learning.

As we continuously evaluate our data, and hear from teachers and our site leaders, there continues to be a dominant narrative that more must be done to address the social and emotional development of our students. Collectively speaking, our teachers continue to do amazing work in providing dynamic learning experiences for our students. It is now time for us to articulate a tiered approach to addressing unwanted student behaviors and student trauma – at all grade levels – while also fostering greater hope and confidence in our students’ lives. The idea is that we will be more proactive in our efforts, providing counseling and guidance to address the social, emotional, and academic needs of our students. I firmly believe this will make a positive difference in our students’ lives and in the learning culture of our buildings.

Mr. Pennington’s work as a special education teacher, assistant principal, and principal make him uniquely qualified to lead in this new position. In addition to this change, I am also pleased to announce that Mr. Clay Hucke, assistant principal at Union High School, has been asked to serve as an interim principal at the Sixth & Seventh Grade Center. Mr. Hucke has done an outstanding job at the high school and he looks forward to serving the students, staff, and parents at this site.

Please join me in congratulating Mr. Pennington and Mr. Hucke. These moves will become effective January 1, 2020.

Respectfully,

Kirt Hartzler, Ed.D.
Superintendent
Union Public Schools
