Parent Legislative Action Committee

The Parent Legislative Action Committee (PLAC) was established by a small group of parents whose children attended Jenks Public Schools. Since that time, the nonpartisan group has grown to include parents from several Tulsa area schools including Sapulpa, Sand Springs, Union, Owasso, and now, Broken Arrow.

Tulsa Parent Legislative Action Committee (PLAC) is a nonpartisan committee with the goal of increasing awareness of parents and the community on legislative issues impacting public education in Oklahoma.

PLAC hosts monthly meetings to learn about legislation pertaining to public education. The committee provides a practical way for parents to become more informed and involved with issues that directly impact their child’s experience in the classroom.

Regular Meetings are held at various area school districts. The group also visits the Capitol several times during the legislative session to lobby in favor or opposition to specific education bills.

“The goal of Parent Legislative Action Committee is to educate parents and state legislators on how laws affect public education,” said Melissa Abdo, current PLAC President. “We work closely with school administrators and other experts in order to better understand our educational system and how we can improve it.”

Beginning each February, the PLAC makes monthly trips to Oklahoma City to meet the legislators on their own turf at the State Capitol. A few days before the trip, parents are encouraged to contact their local legislators and invite them to meet with the group during their visit.

Tulsa PLAC reserves a room in the Capitol building and spends the day talking to legislators about specific bills parents either support or oppose and provides them with data to support our position,” said Abdo. “Our time that day is spent as lobbyists for our schools – we try to help the legislators understand how their bills will positively or negatively affect the schools, and we work to find a common ground.”

United Way Campaign

Once again, September will be a “Month of Giving” at Union Public Schools. We appreciate the generosity of Union students, families, teachers and staff as we raise funds for the 59 partner agencies of the Tulsa Area United Way. Thank you for joining in the fun as we support the United Way’s mission of uniting people and resources to improve lives and build a stronger community.

September is School Attendance Awareness Month

School spirit is a commitment. It requires that you be here, body and soul. Without a strong base, the pyramid falls apart. It’s the same in life. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences cancel your performance. Absence is the spirit-killer. A crowd-pleasing routine is more than just showing up . . . but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU

New website

Union Public Schools has a new website! We are pleased to work with our new provider Gabbart Communications. While it is a brand-new website, we have purposely designed it to be familiar. So most items will be found in the places in which you are accustomed to finding them. We are continuing to refine the site and more features, such as video, are coming. If you have a comment, please email us.
