New initiatives greet UCS students
for 2015-2016 school year


Important changes aimed at increased student achievement will be in place when the doors to Michigan’s second largest school district open for the 2015-2016 school year.

When doors open on September 8, Utica Community Schools students will benefit from the implementation of program enhancements, particularly in the area of language arts, changes in state assessment programs, a series of facility and technology upgrades and a new parent communication system aimed at college readiness and future jobs.

“UCS continues to prepare our students for success through a college culture that promotes the importance of continuing their education once they leave our schools,” superintendent Dr. Christine Johns said. “This college culture ensures our students are successfully prepared for these post-secondary experiences, whether that includes a university, community college, trade school or service to our country.”

UCS means Success for this year's graduates and all those to come

Utica Community Schools has sent more than 2,200 new graduates out into the world this year.

They are leaving our schools with a wealth of experience, bold determination, a sense of optimism about their futures and that extra something known to our community as UCS means Success.
