Applications sought for Student Advisory Council

High school students interested in serving on the state school superintendent’s Student Advisory Council are encouraged to apply in the next month.

State School Superintendent John Barge and members of the Council meet three times during the school year to discuss how decisions at the state level affect students. Members of the council serve as liaisons between the Department of Education and students.

“I am excited about to getting to know a new group of student advisors and discuss how our policies impact them on a daily basis,” Barge said in a press release. “We want to make education work for all of Georgia’s students, and hearing directly from them is the best way to ensure that happens.”

The meeting dates are set for Sept. 27, Feb. 14 and May 2. Applications must be received by Sept. 13. Students interested in applying should contact Ron Culver at rculver@doe.k12.ga.us.
