FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Department of Education is
looking for a few good students.
A statement from the agency says it is looking for high school
students in public schools to apply for a yearlong stint on the
Next-Generation Student Council.
The council is a new group that was formed by Kentucky Education
Commissioner Terry Holliday in order to get feedback from students
on critical issues facing schools and on how decisions made at the
state level affect them. The group will meet with the commissioner
and the Education Department staff both in-person and virtually.
Applications can be found on the Education Department web site
and must be returned by Nov. 30. A committee will then choose 11 students in grades 10-12 to serve during the 2011-2012 school year.
