School Community Program

The Union City Board of Education belongs to the community. We believe that a happy, productive and safe community is the key to the well-being of all Union City residents.

Recognized across the nation as an urban leader with award winning schools and high student test scores, Union City has the key to a quality education. We have the key to build new schools and public libraries. We have the key to offer you free preschool, health screening, adult education or training for new jobs.

In this portion of the Union City Board of Education website, you will find valuable information that is KEY to helping you get educated, get child care, get assistance, get involved, and just have fun.

School Construction
Board Members and State representative digging the ground for the Union City High School SanctuaryThe Union City Board of Education is building new buildings so our children can be safe, healthy and productive at school. New schools mean a better place to learn. With modern, air-conditioned buildings we will have smaller classes, full-service cafeterias, well-equipped science, math, music, technology and arts classrooms and advanced, high-tech libraries. And by working with the city, we’re making the neighborhoods around the schools better, too.

If you have any questions or concerns about new schools construction, please contact our Facilities Department.
