Bill Husfelt announces he's running again for Bay District Schools superintendent
For the past 12 years, Bill Husfelt has served as the Superintendent for Bay District Schools.
Now, he's hoping to win his seat again for another term.
He says if he wins he wants to focus on rebuilding the schools and taking care of the wellbeing of students.
Husfelt says after Hurricane Michael too many students are facing the challenges of mental illness and homelessness.
He also wants to help build a more diverse education system.
"To grow our STEM areas in all the schools. Next year we're starting the STEM programs at many of our Title One elementary schools. We're going to bring coding and computer technology into the classroom for elementary students because we want them to start thinking about their careers," said Husfelt.
He also says one of his goals as superintendent is for every Bay District Schools' graduate to walk across the stage knowing they can start a career, go to college, join the military or do something that makes them successful.
