Research-Design-Assessment

Union Public Schools

The Research-Design-Assessment department is a part of the Teaching and Learning division.  Our mission includes coordinating district and state testing as well as providing teachers, students and parents with up to date and accurate assessment data.  When wisely used, assessment data can guide instructional decisions to increase student achievement.

Proficiency-Based Promotion

Proficiency-Based Promotion (PBP) testing, also known as Credit by Examination (CBE) provides an opportunity for students to move forward in their educational endeavors by subject, course, and/or grade level based upon demonstration of mastery of the Oklahoma State Standards.  Proficiency-Based Promotion is intended to serve those students in Union Public Schools whose needs are not being met by available enrichment and/or advanced coursework. Opportunities for PBP or CBE testing occur in April and July.  For more information please contact Todd Nelson, Senior Executive Director For Research-Assessment-Design. 

OSDE Parent/Student Portal

The Oklahoma State Department of Education has developed a portal by which you can review your student’s state test scores and related information online.  In order to access the portal you will need to create an account using the state testing number (STN) for each student in your family who has taken state tests.  The STN is a 10-digit number, which is different from the Union student ID number.

Finding the STN: You can find the STN on Union’s Infinite Campus parent portal.  The Infinite Campus parent portal can be accessed by the Infinite Campus app or this link.

Once on the Infinite Campus parent portal, your student’s STN can be found under the “Assessment” tab along with other test results.  Please note that the Infinite Campus app has been updated, and you will need to use the updated version that looks like this: Portal Icon

SDE portal / See SDE portal instructions.

Please note: The OKSDE has announced that the results for the 2018-19 state tests for 3rd-8th grades are expected to be released on the portal at the end of May.  Results for 2018-19 state tests administered in 11th grade (SAT and Science) are expected to be posted at the end of July.

Last Day of School is May 22

Friday, May 22 will be the last day of school for the 2019-20 year. Additional time will be added to the school day for students in grades 6-8 beginning Monday, March 23, and continue through the end of the school year.

“Due to two days of school that were cancelled due to inclement weather, the district calendar had to be adjusted to meet the minimum state requirement of 1,080 hours of instruction,” Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said. “We wanted to adjust the calendar so students don’t have to come back after Memorial Day.

Modifications to the school schedule will be made as follows:

  1. Add one day at the end of the year, with Friday, May 22, being the last day of school;
  2. Elementary schools:  No change to the schedule. They have enough school hours to meet the required 1,080 hours.
  3. 6th & 7th Grade Center:  4 minutes added to the end of the school day effective Monday, March 23 (the day after spring break). 
  4. 8th Grade Center:  2 minutes added to the end of each day after March 23.
  5. Union High School Freshman Academy:  No change to current times.
  6. Union High School:  Friday, April 10 will be a “virtual day,” with students working on assignments from home.
