Georgia state school superintendent-elect seeks student advisers
Richard Woods
State School Superintendent Richard Woods is scheduled to be at the First District RESA office, 201 West Lee St. in Brooklet, for a listening session 9-11 a.m. Tuesday.

State School Superintendent-elect Richard Woods is accepting applications for the 2015 Student Advisory Council.

The members of the Student Advisory Council meet three times during the school year with the state school superintendent to discuss how decisions made at the state level are affecting students throughout Georgia. Members are advisers and act as liaisons between the Department of Education and the students of Georgia. Woods will conduct the meetings, which will also feature various department personnel providing further information.

"Meeting with students and getting their advice will be a top priority of mine as state school superintendent," said Woods. "I am committed to making decisions that are in the best interests of our students, and hearing from them directly is how I can ensure that happens."

All students in grades seven through 12 are eligible to apply. Meetings will be held in February, March and early May, though dates are subject to change. Applicants should be able to attend all meetings.

To be eligible for the council, applications must be received by Friday, Jan. 16.
