What is a student advisory council??

Students may apply for the advisory council at the beginning of each school year by obtaining an application from their school or from this website.
How do I apply for the Advisory Council??
Students may apply for the advisory council at the beginning of each school year by obtaining an application from their school or from this website. Members are chosen by a committee of Georgia Department of Education representatives based on the applicant's response to questions.
How do I submit questions to the Student Advisory Council??
Any questions should be submitted to [email protected]. Please note that we communicate via email with Student Advisory Council members and parents. Your application MUST include an email address that you regularly check/monitor.
Will there be in person meetings for the 2021 Student Advisory Council??
Because students who participated in the 2020-2021 Student Advisory Council only had the opportunity to attend virtual meetings, Superintendent Woods will also host two in-person meetings specifically for members of that council who are still enrolled in high school. These students have also been contacted directly.
