FirstEnergy's Educational Advisory Council consists of a panel of educators and school administrators that meet each year to discuss FirstEnergy's educational goals. The Council extensively reviews and evaluates a variety of resources and makes appropriate recommendations on grade and subject use.

The Council has worked to select only those materials that are accurate and unbiased, have high potential for student interest and are suitable for the grade levels and subject areas listed. As fellow educators, our Council members encourage educators to make full use of the materials and programs provided.
