From the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE)
ISBE’s Student Advisory Council welcomes you, the students of Illinois, to explore resources and ask questions that we can bring to the State Board from a student’s perspective. We are here to represent you and we want to hear your voice!
Each year a group of students are chosen from around the state to be student advisors to the board. This group of students have the opportunity to see the State Board’s policymakers in action and work with them to provide student perspectives and concerns on the state’s education policies. Students come together a handful of times throughout the year and work remotely on a research project that is presented to the Board. Applications are available in the spring and students are chosen over the summer with their work beginning in September and culminating with a presentation to the Board in March.

The deadline to apply is 5:00pm on May 29, 2020.
