Members of the Superintendent's advisory council sit around the table sharing input and ideas.

Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council

Since taking office in 2013, Superintendent Sprinkles has relied on students to share information with him on academics and culture in their schools.   The Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council is “my favorite group to meet with,” according to Superintendent Sprinkles.  “The students are very open about what they think and offer suggestions on how to make their schools better.”

Purpose

The Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council will meet with Superintendent Kelly Sprinkles to discuss how decisions made at the school and district level are affecting students throughout the county. Members serve as liaisons between Superintendent Sprinkles, the Knox County Board of Education, and the students of Knox County.
