State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge is accepting applications for the 2013-14 Student Advisory Council.
The council members meet three times during the school year with Barge to discuss how decisions made at the state level affect students throughout Georgia.
Members are advisers and act as liaisons between the Department of Education and the students of Georgia. Barge will conduct the meetings, which also will feature various GaDOE personnel providing further information.
All students in grades nine-12 are eligible to apply.
Meeting dates are: Sept. 27, 2013; Feb. 14, 2014; and May 2, 2014. These dates are subject to change. Applications must be received by Sept. 13. Students interested in applying for the council should email Ron Culver at firstname.lastname@example.org.
