Sapulpa PLAC(SPS) -- A group of Sapulpa schools parents has started a parent legislative action committee to help advocate for public education.

The Sapulpa PLAC will host its first meeting during Public Schools Week on Feb. 27. State Representatives Mark Lawson and Kyle Hilbert as well as Senator James Leewright are expected to attend and give an update on legislation currently being considered in Oklahoma City.

Public Schools Week is a national celebration to highlight the great things happening in our nation’s public schools as well as bring attention to the critical issues facing our schools, students, and educators.

The Sapulpa PLAC, a local organization affiliated with the statewide group, Oklahoma PLAC, is a grassroots organization that shares in the mission of other local PLAC organizations across the state. It is a nonpartisan group comprised of passionate volunteer advocates who are committed to promoting policies that protect, support, and strengthen the public school system in the state of Oklahoma.

The goal of the group is to gather and research information about the issues and legislative proposals that impact public education, and more specifically how Sapulpa Public Schools students and teachers are impacted.

On April 21, the Sapulpa PLAC will travel to Oklahoma City to participate in the OKPLAC Capitol Day in which the group will meet with legislators, hear advocacy updates, and discuss issues that matter to Sapulpa schools.

Parents who are interested in joining the Sapulpa PLAC should follow the group’s Facebook page and are welcome to attend the meeting on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m. in the board room at the Washington Administrative Center located at 511 E. Lee in Sapulpa.
