Advisory Council Gives Students a Voice

Thomasville City Schools is proud to announce the start of its Student Advisory Council. The Student Advisory Council will consist of students in grades 7-12. They will collaborate with school board members and give input regarding decision making, structuring of policies, and implementation processes.  The main goal is to give students a voice and for students and school board members to achieve greater awareness regarding academic programs and school climate. Topics for the Student Advisory Council may include:  technology needs, teacher training, college and career readiness, student leadership, academics, testing, school climate and culture, and communication. Members earned their positions on the Student Advisory Council through an application process. Their first monthly meeting will be held in October.
