To focus, coordinate and unify our many programs, efforts and individual contributions towards providing the best possible education for each Union City student, the Union City School District has defined the following goals and objectives.
A major goal of the District is to create an educational system where all students achieve proficiency in the New Jersey Student Learning Standards
and to ensure schools have support for quality teaching and learning. Recognized at the state level as a high performing Abbott District, the Union City School District will continue to provide effective, high-quality instruction according to goals that are consistent with Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
, Abbott regulations and current educational research.
ESSA principles for reform—accountability, flexibility, expanded parental options and doing what works—are embedded throughout our District’s Three Year Operational Plan. This plan continues to improve the quality of education in Union City and to raise our expectations of what students can accomplish.
