Georgia's state school superintendent announced today that his office is seeking those interested in becoming a student adviser.
Applications for the 2010-11 Student Advisory Council are now being accepted.
The council would meet three times during the school year, discussing how decisions made at the state level affect students in Georgia, a news release states.
Interim state school Superintendent Brad Bryant will conduct the first meeting, and other meetings will be hosted by the new superintendent - to be determined in the November election - or deputy superintendents.
All students grades 9-12 are eligible to apply. Meeting dates, which are subject to change, are: October 25, January 24, and March 7, 2011, the release states.
Applicants must be able to attend all three meetings. Applications must be received by September 17.
