It’s That Time: Student Advisory Council Applications Now Being Accepted

State School Superintendent Richard Woods seeks students in grades 10-12 to serve on his 2022-2023 Student Advisory Council. These students will meet with Superintendent 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; meeting dates are listed in the application.

“Each year, as I make decisions that impact students across the state, my Student Advisory Council serves as an irreplaceable resource,” Superintendent 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.”
