GCPS Superintendent's Student Advisory Council
Gwinnett County Public Schools Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council (SSAC) is a unique opportunity for middle and high school students to share their feedback, school experiences, and perspectives on various issues affecting students, schools, and communities with Superintendent Dr. Calvin J. Watts.
Through the council, students are able to voice their ideas, share suggestions for improving our schools and our district, act as thought partners as they connect with fellow students, and build their leadership capacity alongside students with whom they may not otherwise work alongside.
The application for the 2023-24 SSAC will be available in the Student Portal from August 9-27, 2023. Additional details about the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council, including meeting dates and times, is available on our website.
