Bay County Schools is still reeling from the devastation Hurricane Michael brought the region in October. Loss of more than ten percent of its students and hundreds of staff will have the district facing a new normal in the coming school year. Bay Superintendent Bill Husfelt spoke with Ryan Dailey about where the district is now, as summer begins.

Questions:

Where is the district now in terms of recovery, now 7 months after the hurricane?

Is addressing mental health a point of focus in the district now?

What’s your reaction to the budget passed by the Florida Legislature just weeks ago?
