Seeking Applications for 2017-18 State Student Advisory Council on Education

High school principals are invited to nominate a student to be considered for service as a member of the State Student Advisory Council on Education (SSACE).

SSACE meets regularly with the Commissioner of Education – and, on occasion, with the Governor – to provide high school students’ perspectives on critical issues. Council members write position papers on important topics in education, conduct the statewide Challenge to Educational Citizenship Awards Program, and, through their discussions and activities, learn from each other about citizenship, leadership, and responsibility

Please consider nominating one student from your school who you think is up to this task. This does not have to be the top-ranked student or president of an important organization. It does have to be a dependable person of good character capable of giving wise counsel to key educational decision-makers.

Applications must be submitted by June 23, 2017.
