State School Superintendent Brad Bryant is accepting applications for the 2010-11 student advisory council.
The members of the council 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 advisors and act as liaisons between the Georgia Department of Education and the students of Georgia. Bryant will conduct the first meeting and the others will be hosted by the new superintendent or deputy superintendents.
“I know that former Superintendent Kathy Cox really enjoyed working with her advisory councils and learning from the advice of students,” Bryant said. “I believe it is important to take the feedback of these students into account as we make statewide policy decisions that affect their futures and prepare them for college and career readiness.”
 All students in grades nine-12 are eligible to apply.

Meeting dates are:
• Oct. 25
• Jan. 24, 2011
• March 7, 2011
Dates are subject to change. Applicants should be able to attend all three meetings.
To be eligible for the council, applications must be received by Sept. 17.
