Student Advisors Bring Goals to Superintendent Reedy

Students representing all APS high schools serve on the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council or SuperSAC.

Superintendent Raquel Reedy met with her student advisors, known as the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council or SuperSAC, to plan the year and develop goals. The students represent each of the district’s traditional high school as well as its schools of choice.

“I have been waiting for this meeting all year,” Reedy told the students. “I wanted a mix of students from across the district to be able to get advice on major issues that we are dealing with.”

Reedy gave the students a glimpse into what it takes to run one of the largest school districts in the country. She also shared a little of her life story, including how she feared leaving her hometown of Laredo, Texas, to go to Harvard University in Boston.

“If you are faced with a challenge take it, embrace it,” Reedy said. “I did and I am blessed to be here working with you today.”

The students spent the meeting getting to know one another and setting goals for the year. The top projects they want to tackle are bringing schools together, learning more about the Academic Master Plan, working on getting a Career Enrichment Center on the west side, and creating a district wide newspaper that has student written stories and information.

This is the tenth year that students have met regularly with the APS superintendent through the advisory council.
