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

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.
