2023-2024 Student Advisory Council

Click here for the list of 2023-2024 Student Advisory Council Members

State School Superintendent Richard Woods has selected 69 Georgia students to serve on his 2022-2023 Student Advisory Council. Throughout the year, these students will meet with Superintendent Woods to provide feedback on the impact of state policies in the classroom.

Members of the Student Advisory Council will also discuss other education-related issues, serve as the Superintendent's ambassadors to their respective schools, and participate in service projects to benefit schools and students.

The council includes at least four students from every Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA) region in Georgia; students from rural, suburban, and urban schools are represented. Because GaDOE works to ensure the council is representative of students in all regions of the state and selects students based on the strength of their essay answers, in some cases multiple students from a district may be selected.

Selected students will receive additional details via email.​

About the Student Advisory Council

The State School Superintendent's Student Advisory Council is a group of students in grades 10-12 who discuss how decisions made at the state level are affecting students throughout Georgia. Members meet 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. 


The 2023-2024 Student Advisory Council will meet four times, on the following dates. For Student Advisory ​Council members who live 50+ miles away from an announced meeting location, overnight lodging will be provided.

  • November 9, 2023
  • January 18, 2024
  • March 7, 2024
  • April 25, 2024
