Georgia education chief wants 10th through 12th graders to serve on statewide student advisory council

State School Superintendent Richard Woods is asking students in grades 10 through 12 to serve on his 2022-2023 Student Advisory Council.

The students will meet with Woods to discuss the impact of state policies in the classroom and other education-related issues. They 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 2022-2023 school year as a sophomore, junior, or senior. Virtual learning students are still considered enrolled. The Student Advisory Council will meet four times in person during the school year.

“Each year, as I make decisions that impact students across the state, my Student Advisory Council serves as an irreplaceable resource,” Woods said. “Meeting and learning about each council member and seeking their feedback, opinions, and perspectives allows insight for all Georgia Department of Education leadership and staff to make the best possible policy choices.”

Selected students will be contacted via email. All students may visit gadoe.org/studentadvisory on October 11, 2022, at 10 a.m. to determine if they have been selected.
