Welcome to Bay District Schools!
We’re happy to have you in our community and we are grateful for the sacrifices in service to our country. Support for military dependents who attend our schools is of great importance to us. Superintendent Bill Husfelt has established a strong and mutually beneficial relationship with the leaders at local bases. Teachers, administrators and staff in throughout our school district recognize the special challenges for those who serve in the armed forces and understand that the entire family serves.
School Liaison Officers (SLOs) have been put in place at both Naval Support Activity Panama City and Tyndall Air Force Base. They work closely with school district staff to ensure that we meet the unique needs of military dependents. Contact information for School Liaison Officers is listed below.
School Liaison Officers also network, educate and work in partnership with local schools to establish support programs. These include, but are not limited to, classroom mentoring to enhance the educational experience for both military and civilian students, Student to Student peer groups (S2S and JS2S), Federal Impact Aid awareness initiatives, and specialized training for guidance counselors, teachers and administrators.
Bay District Schools is also a member of the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC). In 2011, MCEC awarded a Pete Taylor Partnership Award in to The Bay Area Education Alliance ~ a working partnership that includes the schools district, Naval Support Activity Panama City and Tyndall Air Force Base. This Alliance was one of just a few partnerships worldwide that received the award. Click here to read details about the Alliance.
SLOs have also established the S2S and JS2S support programs in area high schools and middle schools. Students received training and guidelines to establish and sustain peer-based support systems in their schools with the primary purpose of providing support for students as they make transitions to new schools.Click here to learn more about S2S and JS2s.
