Academic Counseling Support

Counselors meet with students to develop a 4-year academic plan beginning in the 8th grade. The plan is updated every year during the enrollment period. Academic intervention is also provided to students who need support throughout the school year. This may include, but is not limited to, organization skills, time management and test anxiety.

Enrollment

New students must visit the Enrollment Center before meeting with a counselor to get a schedule. 

Current students will enroll for the following school year each spring. Enrollment conferences will be held for grades 9th– 12th to discuss courses, academic plans and other questions and concerns.

Graduation Requirements

Counselors review transcripts to ensure students are meeting graduation requirements after the completion of each semester. Graduation requirements are determined by the State of Oklahoma and can be found here  

FoolProof

Students must complete a Financial Literacy course as part of their graduation requirements. All Union students are assigned a FoolProof login in the Spring of their 9th grade year. Students can access their account by visiting www.foolproofme.com and should contact their counselor for login information or to have a quiz reset.

Grades

Students and parents can access grades using the online portal (link to) Grades Online

Questions or concerns about student grades should be directed to the teacher. If additional support is needed please contact the counselor.

Credit Recovery

Students who fail a class in grades 9th-12th may be required to recover credits through our Credit Recovery Program in order to fulfill the graduation requirements.

Homework Help

Tutoring opportunities may be available. Additional resources can be found by following the links below:

Oklahoma’s Promise

Oklahoma’s Promise is a state sponsored scholarship that pays for in-state college tuition for students whose parents earn $55,000 or less. Students may apply for the scholarship anytime between the 8th and 10th grade. Applications will not be accepted after June 30th of the 10th grade year. School Counselors will assist students in tracking their GPA and taking the required courses needed to qualify for the scholarship.

College/Career Planning

The goal of Union Public Schools is to graduate 100% percent of our students while ensuring they are all college/career ready. Counselors work with students to explore personal interests and careers in order to develop an academic plan that is relevant to their future.

College and Career Advisors are available to all students at the High School to assist with post-secondary needs such as college applications, FAFSA, Naviance and scholarships. For more information please visit, College and Career.

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
