Leadership Roles and Responsibilities

 

Educators

Our educators have the responsibility and full accountability of the daily activities in their assigned classroom. Their responsibilities include curriculum preparation and instruction, student discipline and Christian character development, as well as appropriate interaction with the students' parents / guardians. Each educator will have policies and procedures for the management of their individual classroom that underscore and reinforce the values and character of Union Christian Academy. Each of our educators is expected to be a committed Christian, actively serving in a church. Our teachers are selected because of their qualifications and proficiency to teach in a given area of study, as well as their reputation both in the classroom and community. Our elementary and high school teachers are 100% degreed individuals. All teachers continue to receive training appropriate to their specific certification teaching assignments. They are the first level authority in issue / conflict resolution in accordance with Matthew 18.
