It may be early, but the local election season has begun.
Webb Elementary Assistant Principal Brandy White officially announced his campaign for superintendent of Houston County Schools during an event earlier this month.
White was named Alabama Assistant Principal of the Year by the Alabama Education Association in 2016. He taught at the elementary, middle, and high school levels for 20 years and has been an assistant principal for more than seven years. He holds a bachelor’s degree in biology and history and a master’s degree in educational leadership.
White said a major emphasis as superintendent would be to find a permanent source of funding school resource officers and to give attention to violent and aggressive student behavior.
White said he would push to implement foreign language education in elementary and middle schools and seek equitable access to technology across all schools.
White also emphasized a long-range facilities plan and review of the county schools salary schedule.
White is married with two children. He is an active member of Madrid Baptist Church.
