Juan Angel, a Valdosta High School junior, has been selected as one of the 64 members of this new Student Advisory Council.
"Now more than ever, it is essential that I receive feedback directly from students on their educational experience," Superintendent Woods said. "My Student Advisory Council has been an invaluable part of my decision-making process for the last six years, and I am looking forward to meeting with the 2020-21 Council soon."
The council includes representation from every Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA) district in Georgia. Members were selected from a pool of more than 1,400 applicants who applied to serve on the council. Students were chosen based on the strength of their essay answers, which focused on their ideas for public education.
The 2020-21 Student Advisory Council's first meetings will be held virtually in November. Details will be sent via email to selected students.
