Five Gwinnett County Public Schools students have been tapped to serve on State School Superintendent Richard Woods’ 2018-2019 Student Advisory Council.
The students are among a group of more than 120 middle and high school students who will meet with State Superintendent Woods to discuss the impact of state policies in the classroom. Members of the Student Advisory Council also will discuss other issues related to education, serve as the State Superintendent’s ambassadors to their respective schools, and participate in service projects to benefit schools and students.
Council members were selected from a pool of nearly 1,000 students who applied to serve on the council. Students were chosen based on the strength of their essay answers— which focused on their ideas for public education— as well as their community service experience. Selected students attend public schools around the state.
Meetings of the Student Advisory Council will be held:
Middle School Students: October 10, November 28, February 5, and May 13
High School Students: October 11, November 29, February 6, and May 14
