The following is a summary of Union County Public Schools State Accountability Data for 2020-21.  You may also find additional data on the Kentucky Department of Education Website in the Open House section.
You may also find complete state assessment and accountability data at the Kentucky School Report Card Site. 
Students participate in both state and local assessments.  Locally, students in grades K-8 take STAR assessments 3-4 times per year in reading, math, and early literacy (K-1).  Students in grades 9-12 may participate in STAR Reading and STAR Math.  These assessments help teachers and families with ideas for helping students with reading and math skills. 
State required assessments are also given throughout the school year.  All students in grades 3-8, and grades 10-11 participate in Kentucky Summative Assessment each spring.  Assessments vary according to grade level.  Grade 11 students also participate in spring ACT testing.  For more information about state assessments please click the link below.
