Oklahoma City, OK – High school students from across Oklahoma joined State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister recently for the first in-person Student Advisory Council meeting since the start of the pandemic. They met at the State Capitol on April 6. 

This is the seventh consecutive year Hofmeister has convened the group of juniors and seniors to assist her and the Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) in matters of policy. Feedback from the council has been instrumental in developing several state-level initiatives. 

“It is imperative to get feedback from these amazing young people. Their insights are incredibly valuable, and their thoughtful reflection and fearless vision are instrumental to our decision-making,” Hofmeister said.
