Treutlen Student Named to Governor's Council
Friday, 19 October 2012

October 19-- State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge today named 50 students from around Georgia to serve on his 2012-2013 Student Advisory Council.  As members of the council, these students will meet two times throughout the school year to advise Superintendent Barge on how state policies are having an impact in the classroom. The Student Advisory Council will also discuss other education-related issues and will serve as the Superintendent's ambassadors in their respective schools. 

"The Student Advisory Council allows me to hear directly from students in our schools and discuss major initiatives with them," Superintendent Barge said. "The Council also gives students the opportunity to share with me their ideas and concerns, which we can use to shape future state policies.”

More than 750 students from 121 districts applied to be a member of the Student Advisory Council and answered essay questions. Students were chosen based on the strength of their essay answers.

"It was very difficult to choose the members of the Student Advisory Council because there were so many great applications," Superintendent Barge said. "I’m excited about working with this group of students because I know they will be prepared to share their ideas to make education work for all students.”

The first meeting of the Student Advisory Council will be held Nov. 28 at the state Department of Education offices in Atlanta.
