Superintendent seeks student advisors

Taylor Watkins, Editor-in-Chief

The state Superintendent Richard Wood is currently seeking applications for the Student Advisory Council.

The Student Advisory Council is a group of 7-12th graders who meet three times throughout the year to discuss how decision of the Georgia Department of Education affect students throughout Georgia.

High school students will meet October 4, January 17, and April 10.

To apply, students must be enrolled in a Georgia public middle or high school for the 2017-18 school year.

“The student advisory council is an absolutely invaluable resource for the Georgia Department of Education team as we make decisions that impact students and classrooms,” Superintendent Wood said. “Nothing can replace the opportunity to hear directly from students about their experience in Georgia’s public schools and what we can improve. I’m looking forward to meeting and working with this year’s Student Advisory Council members.”

Applications can be accessed through this link  and sent to [email protected] by Sept. 1 at 5 p.m.
