The Illinois State Board of Education is taking applications from eligible high school students interested in serving on the state agency’s Student Advisory Council (SAC) for the 2014-15 school year. Students attending a public high school in Illinois who are entering the fall semester as a sophomore, junior or senior are eligible to apply.

The Student Advisory Council, which was established in 1975, represents a diverse group of students who have demonstrated a strong work ethic, the ability to think creatively and work well in groups. Members share student concerns and can provide thoughts on ISBE’s existing and proposed programs, policies and regulations. The student members also choose a special project to research and present before the board at the end of the school year.

The deadline to submit an application for the 2014-15 Student Advisory Council is 5 p.m. Friday, May 30, 2014. If you have any questions please contact Vince Camille at (217) 782-3007 or
