The Superintendent's Student Advisory Council played an important role in providing feedback to APS administrators on a variety of issues form bullying and violence in school to cafeteria food to budget.

Superintendent Winston Brooks celebrated the end of the school year with the student members of the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council (SuperSAC).  The end of the year celebration was held at Hinkle Family Fun Center, which is a sponsor of SuperSAC.

“I want to thank the Hinkle Family for going above and beyond to support the SuperSAC,” said Superintendent Winston Brooks. “We had another fantastic year with these very bright and focused students; I cannot overstate their impact on policies and the budget in this district.”

SuperSAC students focused on giving ideas on bullying and violence in schools, what expanded course offerings in high schools should be, concerns about food quality and service, and their priorities in the FY14 budget. In addition, students spent a day at the New Mexico Legislature and were recognized for their impact on education programs in Albuquerque.

“I look forward to another successful year with SuperSAC next school year, their guidance and true advice to me and the APS Board of Education is invaluable,” Brooks added.

Jason’s Deli of Albuquerque also sponsors SuperSAC, providing lunch for students at the monthly meetings.
