We 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 and Union City Jr. - Sr. High School and is located in Union City, Indiana.
North Side Elementary is a K-6 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.
Union City Jr. - Sr. 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.

RESC Calendar 2013-14
During bad weather conditions, RESC receives many questions about the process of making a decision to delay or close schools. We assure you that student and employee safety is our utmost concern. When we consider making the decision to delay, close, or go to school on time, it is based on the conditions in our school district, not necessarily surrounding districts. While we do keep in contact with other county superintendents, we rely heavily on the transportation and maintenance directors, who are both experienced bus drivers. We travel the roads with the buses and assess road conditions. We consider temperature, wind chill, condition of our parking lots, and whether the Union City sidewalks have been cleared for our students who walk to school. All of these factors are considered before making a final call. Please understand we try to work through this as carefully and cautiously as we can because we do not want to jeopardize the safety of our most precious resource. We do not take these situations lightly; every decision we make involves consideration for all possible outcomes. I would encourage anyone with questions or concerns about this process to contact me at 964-4994. We welcome parent, student, staff, and community feedback. Thank you!
Lisa Smith, RESC Superintendent
The safety of all students is a top priority at RESC. We have safety procedures in place should they be needed and are practiced with the students. The school safety team and the UC Police note the recent events in our country and have met to review our joint plans and procedures.
To maintain a safe environment we control access to our schools and we have the most effective internal procedures in place. During our meeting with the Police Dept., we discussed the fact we do not control access at our entrances. Entry points will now be at the high school and the elementary. A person must enter through a security door to gain access to the building. There is no access via the old West Side entrance during the school day. Parents will check their child in and out via the appropriate office for their grade level. The Jr. HS doors will be open for students before school, but will be locked at 8:15 a.m. The doors will remain locked until 3:00 p.m.
We realize this will create some inconvenience for students and parents. However, we unanimously agree that this is a vital step to maintaining a safe place for our students.

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.
