Hall County's among ten area school systems represented on state Student Advisory Council

By AccessWDUN Staff

Hall County and nine other school systems in northeast Georgia are represented this year on the state Student Advisory Council.

The make-up of the Council was announced this week by state Schools Supt. Richard Woods.

Middle school representatives include students from the Forsyth, Gwinnett, Hall, Barrow, and Franklin County school systems.  High school representatives are from the Gilmer, Rabun, Jackson and Stephens County systems.

Throughout the school year, these students will meet with Woods to discuss the impact of state policies in the classroom. Members of the Student Advisory Council will also discuss other issues related to education, serve as Woods' ambassadors to their respective schools, and participate in service projects to benefit schools and students.

Members were selected from a pool of more than 1,000 applicants who applied to serve on the council.

The Georgia Department of Education Website has a list of the appointees.
