Student Advisory Council's Final Project
The Student Advisory Council presented their final project to the Illinois State Board of Education on Wednesday, March 20, 2019.This year, the SAC went in a new direction with the focus of the group. Rather than one large annual project, the SAC split into six focus groups to more efficiently examine the biggest issues facing students in schools today. Additionally, the SAC reached out to every 2018-2019 applicant in hopes of collaborating with them to develop the Student Voices website.
