Click here for the list of 2019-2020 Student Advisory Council members.
More than 1,000 students applied for the SAC this year. We wish we could have selected every student, but are grateful to all who applied!
The State Superintendent of Schools' student advisory council is a group of students in grades 7-12 who discuss how decisions made at the state level are affecting students throughout Georgia.
Members meet three times throughout the school year with State Superintendent Woods and are advisors who act as liaisons between the Department of Education and the students of Georgia.
Students may apply for the advisory council at the beginning of each school year by obtaining an application from their school or from this website. Members are chosen by a committee of Georgia Department of Education representatives based on the applicant’s response to questions.
Past topics discussed by the student advisory council include: the school dropout rate, student leadership, communication/messaging, the Georgia graduation rule, testing, school climate, and career, technical, and agricultural education.
Please note: A nomination from a school official is NOT necessary to apply for the Student Advisory Council. Any student in a Georgia public school, in grades 7-12, is eligible and welcome to apply for the Council.
