Adams County Sheriff's Department Training at Unity Campus

The Adams County Sheriff’s Department will be conducting training exercises on the Unity Campus this Friday, April 18th. The exercises will take place in the afternoon. School will not be in session and students are not involved. No one should be concerned with several police cars on campus tomorrow. 

Unit 4 is grateful for the partnership we have with the Sheriff’s Department. Their proactive approach is a good thing for the safety of our students, staff, and community. 


Free Screenings for 3-5 Year Olds

Unit 4 is offering Early Childhood Education screenings for students currently living in the Unit 4 school district. This is a free service offered to all children who are 3-5 years old. Parents are urged to take part in this service. 

The screening process will include educational, motor, speech, and language screenings. The screening will also include sharing results with parents. 

Screenings will be Tuesday, May 13, 2014 from 8:00a.m. to 3:30p.m. They will take place at St. Edward’s Church in Mendon. Please call 217.936.2512 to schedule your appointment. 


Successful Community Night

69 parents, community members, and staff turned out Wednesday, April 9th for a district-wide Community Night in the UHS gym. This special meeting of the Board of Education provided opportunities to gather feedback and have discussions about what is going well and where we can improve serving students well throughout our district. The most frequent feedback was that the event was a success - and is something that the Board should certainly hold again. 

Community members heard an overview of the Unit 4 Scorecard. This will be used to document progress toward current goals. Click here to view the Unit 4 Scorecard. The Board will take the feedback received from the evening and will use that to guide future discussions on revising and amending Board goals for 2015.
