Superintendent's Student Advisory Council (SSAC)

  • SSAC

    The Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council is a forum that creates direct communication between the Berea City School District students and the Superintendent. The SSAC is made up of student leaders in grades 7-12.  It is the belief of the Superintendent that student voice be heard and to gain input from them with regard to what the BCSD is doing right and what we can improve.  Through participation in the SSAC, students will have the opportunity to work alongside our Superintendent, Mrs. Tracy Wheeler, and other District leaders.  Being a member of the SSAC provides students with the opportunity to develop leadership skills and collaborate alongside a diverse community of peers.
