Message From The Director

On behalf of all the members of the Union County School Board, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Union County Public Schools website!

Our mission statement, United Commitment to Pupil Success (UCPS), embraces our school system’s desire to prepare every student with the opportunity to achieve success in all future endeavors. The staff and I are committed to inspiring our students to academic excellence within a community that fosters respect, honesty, responsibility, self-discipline, empathy, and a positive attitude.

Despite the increase in higher curriculum standards requirements, UCPS continues to show strong academic performance. With six out of the seven schools in Union County reaching the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Adequate Yearly Progress designation for the 2009-2010 school year, we are dedicated to showing continued growth in our academic programs.

As we prepare for the future, Union County Public Schools will change, adapt and grow to meet the needs of every child. A continued effort to improve our most important initiative--the education of our children--is our top priority. By working together, schools, community, county, and state, we CAN make great things happen for the children in Union County!

Thank you for your interest in Union County Public Schools!

Dr. James Carter
Director of Schools
