Applicants must be enrolled in a Georgia public middle or high school for the 2017-18 school year. To apply:
· Send applications by September 1, 2016 at 5 p.m. to firstname.lastname@example.org

“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 Woods 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.”
