Superintendent's Message

I would like to extend a warm welcome to the Berne Union community as you view the new school district web site.
Please take time to review elements contained within the Berne Union web site that can be found using various links on this page. You will find a great deal of information regarding Berne Union such as contact information, registration dates, the school calendar, information regarding the school food service program, as well as school activities and schedules. Starting in December, parents will have on-line access to all forms required at the beginning of the school year through this web site. Our goal is to have information transmitted on-line and not need duplicate paper forms for each student. This should save parents a great deal of time, especially when completing forms for several children. More information will be coming soon!
We are very proud of our students, community, and our outstanding school system. Berne Union has a strong track record of academic success and growth in preparing students for colleges and careers. Each year, our excellent staff continues to provide quality programs and experiences for the students of Berne Union. The education and safety of our students are very important.  We will continue to work very hard to make sure we provide a top-notch education and safe learning environment for our students, as well as staff.

As many of you know, we implemented new safety procedures for entering the school and for picking up and dropping off students. Staff continues to receive training on active shooters, intruders, fire drills, bomb threats, and other types of training will continue to keep students safe. A school resource officer was added to staff last spring as another method in keeping students safe.

In addition to the new entry way, we have upgraded the heating and cooling system, replaced our roof in many areas, and we continue to upgrade the auditorium with plaster repair, painting, new seating including a section for handicapped seating, and new lighting. We currently are having a new bell system and intercom system installed throughout the facility.

Should you need assistance or have questions about any of our programs, you may contact me at or by calling (740) 746-8341.

Go Rockets!
