State Superintendent seeks students for Student Advisory Council

State School Superintendent Richard Woods is seeking students in grades 10-12 to serve on his 2021-22 Student Advisory Council. Selected students will meet with Superintendent Woods to discuss the impact of state policies in the classroom, along with other issues related to education, and will serve as the Superintendent’s ambassadors to their respective schools.

Applicants must be enrolled in a Georgia public high school (including charter schools) for the 2021-22 school year as a sophomore, junior, or senior. Virtual learning students are still considered enrolled. The Student Advisory Council will meet three times in person and once virtually during the school year; meeting dates are listed in the application.

“Year after year, my Student Advisory Council is an invaluable resource as I make decisions that impact students across the state,” Superintendent Woods said. “Getting to know these students and seeking their feedback, opinions, and perspectives allows all of us at the Georgia Department of Education to make the best possible policy choices.”
