Council members were selected from a pool of nearly 1,000 students who applied to serve. 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.

- Middle School Students: October 21, January 15, and March 24,
- High School Students: October 22, January 16, and March 25,
- On May 5, the Student Advisory Council will take part in a joint community service day.
