Illinois State School Board Seeks Student Applicants

The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) invites Illinois public high school students who will be in grades 10, 11, and 12 in the 2019-20 school year to apply to join ISBE’s Student Advisory Council. Members of the council will engage in discussions about how the public education system can better meet students’ needs. The State Board is seeking diverse applicants to provide perspectives on equity and opportunity in Illinois’ public schools. The State Board also seeks applicants considering different opportunities after high school, including apprenticeships, military service, employment, and college. 
The format and duties of the Student Advisory Council evolves each year based on members’ ideas. Past members have met with lawmakers, researched and presented on issues to the State Board, consulted ISBE staff on agency initiatives, launched an Instagram account, and developed the Student Voices website
Members attend several Board meetings in Springfield and meet as a council virtually throughout the year. ISBE reimburses students’ travel expenses. 
The application is due May 31 and available at
