Based on statewide assessments, schools that do not make adequate yearly progress will be provided with technical assistance and strategies to strengthen instruction and address ways of improving student progress.

1030 Edison Elementary School

You have the right to Public School Choice and Supplemental Educational Services (SES). The Union City School District will be able to provide additional assistance for your child/children through providers during the extended day program within the schools. If you would like to request a school transfer, based on space availability, please contact your school principal.
As a district, we continue to strive for every student to achieve success. All of our schools are making great strides and we urge you to remain in our schools and participate in our progress.
Together we can provide our children with the best education possible.
