Military Families

Welcome to Bay County!  We are happy to have you in our community and grateful for your service to our country. Supporting military dependents who attend our schools is of utmost importance to use, and Superintendent Bill Husfelt has established a strong and mutually beneficial relationship with the leaders at our local bases.  Teachers, administrators, and staff throughout our school district recognize the special challenges for those who serve in the armed forces and fully understand it is the entire family who serves.  School Liaison Officers (SLOs) and have been put in place at both Naval Support Activity Panama City and Tyndall Air Force Base to work closely with the school district staff to ensure that we meet the unique needs of military dependents.

Bay District Schools is a member of the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC).  In 2011 and 2015, MCEC awarded a Pete Taylor Partnership Award to The Bay Area Education Alliance, a working partnership that includes the school 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. 


 At Bay District Schools, we are happy to support our military families in every capacity.  If you or your spouse are looking for employment, please click on the link below to see what opportunities are available in our district.
