The purpose of the Superintendent's Student Advisory Council (SSAC) is to act on behalf of all students of the Newton County School System; SSAC representatives serve as advocates for ALL students. The SSAC collaborates to improve the educational process and school environments while focusing on the development of a "college-going" atmosphere in all schools. The SSAC aids in the communication among students, parents, and the community. SSAC members are ambassadors of the school system.
