State School Superintendent Brad Bryant is accepting applications for the 2010-2011 Student Advisory Council.
The members of the Student Advisory Council meet three times during the school year with the state school superintendent to discuss how decisions made at the state level are affecting students throughout Georgia.
Members are advisors and act as liaisons between the Department of Education and the students of Georgia. Superintendent Bryant will conduct the first meeting, while the others will be hosted by the new superintendent or deputy superintendents.
“I know that former Superintendent Kathy Cox really enjoyed working with her advisory councils and learning from the advice of students,” said State School Superintendent Bryant in a statement. “I believe it is important to take the feedback of these students into account as we make statewide policy decisions that affect their futures and prepare them for college and career readiness.”
All students in grades 9-12 are eligible to apply. Applications must be received by Friday, Sept. 17.
The meeting dates will be Oct. 25, Jan. 24 and March 7. The dates are subject to change. Applicants should be able to attend all three meetings.
