Academic Standards

The Union Area School District will integrate and align all academic standards with the curriculum as described in Chapter 4.

The standards addressed in each planned course and across all grade levels will be consistent with those in section 4.12 of 22 Pa. Code (relating to academic standards).

The main focus of curriculum development and how Union Area addresses the connection of curriculum, instruction, and assessment is grounded in the commitment of analyzing student achievement data as it relates to all academic standards and making necessary adjustments in curriculum, instruction, and assessment to meet the needs of all students and reach proficiency.

Another commitment is to integrate technology in assisting students to become proficient in the academic standards plus assist staff in analyzing and interpreting student achievement data on a regular basis.
