Hi! I am Brent Lehman, Superintendent of the Randolph Eastern School Corporation. I wish to welcome you to our district website. You will find this to be a very useful tool, user friendly, and full of answers to your questions about our schools. Our unified complex houses North Side Elementary, West Side Middle School, and Union City Community High School and is located in Union City, Indiana.
North Side Elementary is a K-5 facility offering excellent literacy instruction, full day kindergarten, and Reading Recovery assistance for those students who need that little extra to become successful readers. These opportunities are presented by a caring and knowledgeable faculty/staff resulting in successful results on state assessments.
West Side Middle School houses grades 6-8. These transition years provide many challenges for students and parents. The middle school staff understands these unique situations. By using the of the middle school concept, teacher teams focus efforts on student growth, a strong counseling program to support students and parents, and a learning environment that providing a positive, successful education.
Union City Community High school offers a diverse array of courses and career paths. These opportunities are provided with a variety of programs including on-site courses, a local TV station, Indiana University ACP Program, Muncie Career Center facility, and inter-local agreements with neighboring schools. Our latest opportunity includes an alternative energy education program created in conjunction with the construction of two 1 megawatt wind turbines; one for the city and one for the school. These wonderful learning resources will provide revenue for the school and community in the coming years. We are proud of the successes of our students and believe we can more than meet the needs of your children.
Enjoy the websites! I hope to meet you in person soon. I would consider it a privilege to introduce you to our wonderful community and show you first hand the outstanding educational opportunities throughout our district.
RESC Calendar 2013-14
To maintain a safety environment we must first control access to the school and secondly we must have the most effective internal procedures in place. During our meeting, we discussed the fact that we do not control access at all entrances. At the high school and the elementary a person must enter through the office to gain access to the building. This is not the case at the middle school. A person could enter the building through the middle school doors without being seen by anyone. This is a concern.
The safety team and the police determined these doors must be locked during the school day.
The middle school doors will be open for students to arrive at school and then the doors will be locked at 8:15 a.m. The doors will remain locked until 3:00 p.m. Because of this change, anyone coming to the middle school during the day will need to enter at the elementary office. Parents of middle school students will complete the sign out process in the elementary office.
The safety team and the police understand this will create a level of inconvenience for students and parents. However, we unanimously agree that this is a vital step to maintaining a safe place for our students.
Additionally, we now has a school resource police officer who will patrol the hallways. Please welcome Miike O'Neal to RESC. He will be present at random times.
Thank you for your cooperation and support.
Brent Lehman, Superintendent

Our acquisition of a small wind turbine for the Union City Community High School Science Department grew into a partnership between Performance Services, Inc. and Randolph Eastern Schools. This resulted in the installation (pictured right) of a full one megawatt turbine in 2010. We believe we were either the first or one of the few school districts in the country to have their own wind turbine. The generated power is sold to power companies with revenue going to offset energy costs within our schools. We also offer courses in alternative energy as part of our curriculum.
