• PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITIES

    As the parent/guardian of a Union Park student, parents are held accountable for certain parental responsibilities and for their child’s conduct during school time and school activities. Parents must understand that their child is required to exhibit appropriate behavior and language.

     Parental responsibilities, in accordance with Arizona laws, include:

    • Making sure their child gets to school on time and attends on a regular basis.
    • Having their child nourished, in good health, dressed appropriately, clean and ready to learn.
    • Educating themselves and their child of school rules and district regulations.
    • Paying for property damages as a result of their child’s misconduct.

     

    Parent Involvement is all about the children. Participation in your child’s education is proven to boost his or her achievement in school. We are committed to treat parents as partners while keeping lines of communication open and focused on the needs of your child. Mutual trust and respect between parents and teachers is required to maintain a positive learning experience at any school. We believe that your trust in Union Park is required to ensure your child’s success.

     

    STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES

    Students at Union Park are held accountable for certain responsibilities and for their conduct during school time and school activities.  Students must exhibit appropriate behavior and use language that is not offensive to the rest of the community.

     Student responsibilities, in accordance with Arizona laws, include:

    • Making sure they get to school on time and attend on a regular basis.
    • Arriving at school nourished, in good health, dressed appropriately, clean and ready to learn.
    • Knowing the school rules and district regulations and abiding by them.
    • Knowing that any property that they may damage will have to be paid for because of their misconduct.
  • All District Rules will be adhered to at Union Park School. Please refer to the DVUSD Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook. We believe that students must treat others with the same respect with which they are treated by the adults in our school. We also believe that student’s actions, dress, possessions, etc., must not cause a problem for themselves or anyone else.

      Home practice directly related to the standards-based, instructional objectives can be assigned using the following time guidelines:

      • Grades 2-3 Up to 60 Minutes per night across all content areas           

     

    • Union Park School will be implementing the grade scales in the 2021-2022 school year. You will no longer see the traditional letter grades of A-F in PowerSchools, report cards and transcripts (for high school) but rather the numbers listed. Also, when an overall class/course grade is determined at the quarter/semester/end of year, a student will need to have a score of at least a 2 in order to pass or earn credit.
    • Grades are for reporting status of academic learning, not behavioral conduct. The primary purpose of assessment/grading is to provide detailed feedback to inform and support student learning.
    • Please remember that learning is a process that takes place over time and at different speeds for different students. 

    Please use PowerSchool to check progress, missing work, and what is being taught/learned regularly. Please ensure that you and your child have access (separate accounts), and you can sign up for the app for notifications/updates.
