Career Connect FAQs

Union Public SchoolsHow often will students be on-site?

Student interns may report daily or twice a week for a 1.5-hour block, depending on the company’s needs and student schedules.

Is there a minimum number of students we are required to take?

No. We have had some partners start with 2-3 students, and others
who accommodate 18-20 students.

Who provides transportation?

In most cases, the students drive. Union Public Schools has provided buses or arranged for alternate transportation in some instances. Partner companies have also offset transportation costs by donating gas cards. One partner even purchased a 15-passenger van.

Do I have to pay the students?

No. We have some partner companies who choose to pay an hourly wage, but the majority of our partners do not pay students. It is considered a job shadowing experience.

Are student interns covered by insurance?

Yes, Junior Achievement covers students with a $1 million liability policy.

What if a student is not working out?

If a student is not a good fit, you may contact the Career Connect office. The arrangement must be mutually beneficial for the student and the company.

At-Home Assignments

School buildings will remain closed, but Union is committed to resuming your student’s learning.  Our intent is to provide a positive academic experience for students without overwhelming parents, and to engage all populations of students, even those who may not have access to the latest technology at home.

At-Home Assignments will be posted on this page by Friday evening of each week through May 15.

See March 31 letter for further explanation.
