Oklahoma Academic Standards for Science (OAS-S)  http://www.ok.gov/sde/sites/ok.gov.sde/files/OAS_Science_Standards_3-2-15.pdf

The new Oklahoma Academic Standards for Science (OAS-Science) were adopted unanimously by the Oklahoma State Board of Education in March of 2014 and signed into rule in June of 2014. However, the state assessments given at grades 5, 8, and Biology 1 for high school will continue to be aligned to the PASS science standards in the 2014-2105 and 2015-2016 school years. 

Priority Academic Student Skills (PASS)  http://ok.gov/sde/sites/ok.gov.sde/files/C3%20PASS%20sci.pdf

The Oklahoma State Testing Program assesses the Science Priority Academic Student Skills (PASS) with a 5th and 8th grade criterion-referenced test and a Biology I End-of-Instruction test. All of these state level assessments are based on the standards in this document.

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.
