Bay County School Superintendent Bill Husfelt is moving forward with plans to restructure the District's support staff. Husfelt says last year 703 1/2 support employees worked for the District, including transportation, maintenance, food service and Nelson Building employees, among others. The new organizational chart will cut the number of support staff down to about 450. The number of staff in the Nelson Administrative Building is being cut by more than half.
"It's not that we're wanting to fire people. That's not what it's about. It's about we've got to put our money where our mouth is and our mouth should be in the schools," said Bill Husfelt, Bay Co. School Superintendent.
Board Members approved Husfelt's recommendations for advertisement. In 30 days they'll take a final vote.
