Newton County School System (NCSS) Superintendent Samantha Fuhrey is currently accepting applications for openings on her Student Advisory Council. The Council is comprised of seventh through twelfth-grade students selected through an application process. At this time, there are currently eight vacancies available as indicated below:
Students who wish to apply for the council should complete an essay packet and return it to Ms. Sherri Davis-Viniard in the NCSS Department of Public Relations by September 16, 2016. The address is 2109 Newton Drive NE, Covington, Georgia, 30014. In lieu of sending through U.S. Mail, students may ask their school principal to place their completed essay/application packet in the school interdepartmental mail system.
“It is extremely important that we reach out to our students to get their input on what we are doing right and what we can improve,” said Fuhrey. “I was very impressed with the work of the student advisory council last year and I expect this year to be just as productive. I enjoy working with the students and I look forward to meeting with them this year.”
The Student Advisory Council will meet three times during the school year with Superintendent Fuhrey on November 3, 2016; January 19, 2017; and May 18, 2017 to discuss how decisions made at the district level are affecting students throughout the county. Meetings will take place at the Newton County Board of Education. Transportation to and from school will be provided. Student members will serve as advisors and act as liaisons between the Newton County School System administration and the students of NCSS.
Applications are available on the homepage of the NCSS website at www.newtoncountyschools.org.
