  • Applications Open for 2017-18 Student Advisory Council

    The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) released the application for the 2017-18 Student Advisory Council (SAC). SAC members learn about education issues in Illinois and provide feedback to the State Board. The students also research a topic of their choosing and present their findings at a State Board meeting. Any student starting the upcoming school year as a sophomore, junior, or senior in an Illinois public high school may apply. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Friday, May 26.


    “ISBE values the voices and perspectives of students,” said State Superintendent of Education Tony Smith, Ph.D. “The Student Advisory Council’s research findings and feedback help inform ISBE’s policies and advocacy. SAC offers high school students a meaningful opportunity to engage around issues they see and experience every day and to learn from and collaborate with students from different backgrounds. I encourage students interested in government, policy, and public service to consider applying for the SAC and sharing their valuable voices with ISBE.”


    The 2016-17 SAC examined the lack of awareness of mental health issues in Illinois public schools. The SAC’s presentation to the State Board March 15 explored ways to strengthen connections between students, teachers, counselors, and administrators and improve students’ academic, social, emotional, and behavioral outcomes.
