Stella Cole, senior at Springfield High School, will serve on the 2016-2017 Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) Student Advisory Council (SAC). She was selected as one of 12 new members in addition to four returning student members from around the state.
ISBE Student Advisory Council meets in-person four times per school year, occasionally in conjunction with meetings of the State Board of Education. There are three conference call meetings for the Council. In addition, 1-2 students participate in Board meetings via phone each month. Each year, SAC members select a year-long research project and present their findings and recommendations to the State Board.
