Superintendent wants student advisers
Placeholder Image
ATLANTA — State Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox is accepting applications for her 2009-10 Student Advisory Council.
Council members meet three times during the school year with Cox to discuss how state decisions affect students. Members are advisors and act as liaisons between the Department of Education and the students of Georgia.
“For several years now, I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with students on my Advisory Councils,” Cox said. “I listen closely to the advice and concerns of these students and share that information with others as we make statewide policy decisions.”
All students in grades 9-12 are eligible to apply. Meeting dates are: Nov. 9, Jan. 25 and March 8 (dates are subject to change.) Applicants should be able to attend all three meetings.
To be eligible, applications must be received by Sept. 30. You can get more information at the superintendent's student advisory council Web site,
