Student Advisory Council
Apply Now to join the 2022-2023 Student Advisory Council.
The Student Advisory Council was created under the leadership of Superintendent Hoffman to center students’ voices and improve K-12 education in the state. Twenty students representing grades 5 through 12 will be selected to participate in this advisory council as part of Superintendent Hoffman’s efforts to elevate the voices of students in Arizona.
Students on the Advisory Council will meet with Superintendent Hoffman and other education leaders quarterly to discuss issues such as academics, technology, school safety and provide feedback on their experience as students.
High School and college students who wish to be an Advisor on our African American, Equitable & Inclusive Practices, Latinx, and Indian Education Advisory Councils can find more information and apply here.
The Student Advisors will be full members of the Student Advisory Council serving a one-year term, with an equal voice and vote. The Student Advisors will share the perspective and experiences of students in their community with the State Superintendent and will influence the councils’ policies and initiatives. The representative will also have the opportunity to connect the work of the Student Advisory Council and the Arizona Department of Education to their community. Meetings take place near the capital and will have a virtual attendance option.
Each applicant must be currently enrolled as a full-time student in grades 5-12 in Arizona with good academic standing. Applications will open in Spring 2023.
