Community & Media Relations

Bay District Schools deliver high quality education in a collaborative, safe, and respectful environment. Our commitment is to inspire students in the development of character with the acquisition and use of knowledge and skills as we prepare them for life and work in a diverse, global economy. Our Superintendent, School Board, school leaders, teachers, and staff are wholly committed to educational excellence with consistent, incremental improvement in student achievement.

There are learning opportunities available for ALL students, from the intellectually gifted to the academically challenged. Special needs students are served in traditional schools throughout the county and also in several targeted special purpose schools. Middle and high school students have the advantage of preparing for experiences beyond high school with a broad range of advanced academic programs and career education opportunities.

The installation and integration of advanced hardware and software allows educators to tap into and engage students through the digital world to which they are accustomed. Multimedia instructional tools give teachers and students an edge in the classroom with interactive white board lesson delivery, connection to global resources and devices that provide immediate student assessment as instruction is delivered. Students and schools also benefit from award-winning business partnerships and a legion of mentors and volunteers through the support of business leaders, military ranks, and community members.

Additionally, thanks to the vote from our community for a half cent sales tax, our schools are on a revolving renovation schedule and an equitable plan of technology installations have been completed in all core classrooms throughout the entire school district.
