United ISD provides water safety and swimming instruction for Elementary, Middle, and High School “Life Skills/ S.F.L” students. UISD’s American Red Cross aquatic program called “Adapted Aquatics Swimming Program” is used as the core for the instructional curriculum.
The purpose of the “Adapted Aquatics Swimming Program” is to orient students to the aquatic environment and to create a foundation for learning fundamental swimming and safety skills. Administrators, teachers, and parents play an important role in the aquatic experience. Everyone’s combined effort leads to student success. The following guidelines will assist students as they participate in this wonderful learning opportunity.
All lessons will be under the direction of the Carroll E. Summers Jr. Aquatic Center staff members. Personnel are certified by the American Red Cross and have a vast array of aquatic experience in water safety courses and Lifeguard training. Each Aquatic Center employee also holds American Red Cross training in First Aid and CPR and is dedicated to providing UISD students with the best in lessons, care, and supervision.
Thank you parents, administrators, and teachers for your efforts on behalf of the UISD students!
