The Union City Cyber Academy: A Partnership Between School Districts

Students who enroll in this program will still be Union City Area School District students. These students will work closely with their own guidance counselors here at UCASD to select from a host of courses that are tailored to their academic and career planning needs. The Warren County School District cyber instructors will update attendance, grades, and academic progress in the online portal, and our guidance and administrative teams will monitor this data closely and communicate with instructors to ensure students are properly supported as they work through this program. Our school district will provide the 1:1 technology for each student who enrolls in the Union City Cyber Academy. Students who receive specialized instruction through our special education program will still work closely with our Student Support Services department, including our Director of Special Education and our School Psychologist, to ensure those needs are being met.
