Union Public Schools Trademarks and Trade Names

The Board of Education recognizes the importance of protecting its trademarks and trade names from unauthorized use.  It is, therefore, the policy of the Board to implement a trademark registration and licensing policy as follows: All of the trademarks, service marks, trade name logos and/or symbols of Union Public Schools including, but not limited to, the names “Union Public Schools” and “Union Redskins” are registered trademarks with the Secretary of State, State of Oklahoma, or are entitled to protection under the common law.  It is the policy of the Board to actively defend their trademark status.  Any use of a Union Public Schools trademark must have prior written approval of the Superintendent or designee and must be produced, manufactured, or sold under license by Union Public Schools.

Revised 12/10/07

Graphics

The design of each registered Union logo must remain intact.  No alterations, additions or deletions to any part of the logo are permitted without written permission from the Superintendent or designee.

The registration notice    is part of the logo and must be included in the place indicated on each logo.  The use of more than one specific type of Union logo in a particular publication or flyer is discouraged.

Acceptable colors for Union logos are solid red, white, black and silver, used individually or in combination of the four.

In the case of the “Split U” logo – most commonly used in athletics, in spirit-related materials, and on uniforms – the black or the darker color should be on the left side, and the red or the lighter color should be on the right side.  Non-solid colors, designs, or patterns such as distressed, camouflage, animal prints, stars and stripes, starbursts, hearts, rhinestones, etc., are not permitted.  Nor may words or graphics be placed on top of the logo.

Generally the district U, also described as the concentric U logo, is used to represent the Union district as a whole and is, therefore, used on buildings, in district publications and on district stationery.  Unlike the Split U logo, words and graphics may be placed on the district U with design approval from the Superintendent or designee.

The “Redskin Logo” is most often associated with Union’s secondary schools and the elementary schools which have adopted the Redskin mascot.  The image of the mascot may only be used in front of the district concentric U logo as pictured.


Colors

Recognizing there are many shades of red, the color considered “Union Red” is a bright red listed as the following:

Pantone #186 or #200 (depending on the texture or material) in the Pantone Formula Guide Color Deck for publications, T-shirts, and novelty items; and

Pantone #19-1763 TPX Formula One in the Pantone Architecture and Interiors Color Deck for walls, buildings, and more permanent structures.
Approval Process

All requests for logos/registered names use must be made in writing, preferably by email, at least two weeks in advance of the inquirer’s deadline.  The request should include:

  •  Applicant’s name, organization, title, and contact     
      information;
  •  Specific logo/name requested;
  •  Purpose (group fundraiser, partnership identification,    promotion, etc.);
  •  Medium in which it will be used (on clothing, novelty    items, in flyers, publications, etc.);

All logo/name requests for use in publications – including flyers, advertisements, websites, etc. – should be directed to:

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
