A huge congratulations goes out to 8th grader Ella Buscema, who has been chosen by our State School Superintendent, Richard Woods, to serve as a member of his 2017-2018 Student Advisory Council.  He chose 142 students from Georgia to be a member of the council and we are proud to have one of our own serving as a representative!!

The council will meet with Superintendent Woods to discuss the impact of state policies in the classroom throughout the year. Members of the Student Advisory Council will also discuss other issues related to education, serve as the Superintendent’s ambassadors to their respective schools, and participate in service projects to benefit schools and students.

“Every year, it is so valuable to hear directly from students through my Student Advisory Council,” Superintendent Woods said. “In the past, we have made direct changes based on student feedback, and I look forward to working with these 142 students who I know will make an impact. I’am so grateful for every student who took the time to apply and share their thoughts.”
Members were selected from a pool of more than 1,500 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. The students selected attend public schools all over the state.
Meetings of the Student Advisory Council will be held October 3, January 16, and April 10 for middle school students and October 4, January 17, and April 11 for high school students. Details will be sent via email to selected students.
