State School Superintendent-elect Richard Woods is accepting applications for the 2015 Student Advisory Council.
Council members meet three times during the school year with the state school superintendent to discuss how decisions made at the state level are affecting students throughout Georgia. Members are advisers and act as liaisons between the Department of Education and the students of Georgia.
Woods will conduct the meetings, which also will feature various DOE personnel providing further information.
“Meeting with students and getting their advice will be a top priority of mine as State school superintendent,” Woods said. “I am committed to making decisions that are in the best interests of our students, and hearing from them directly is how I can ensure that happens.”
All students in grades 7-12 are eligible to apply. Meetings will be held in February, March and early May (dates are subject to change). Applicants should be able to attend all meetings.
Applications are at and must be received by Friday, Jan. 16. For more information, email to
