‘Forward’ details north Okaloosa County progress, problems

Published: Friday, May 3, 2013 at 06:17 PM.

An influx of service members has boosted student populations beyond capacity. Crestview High School, for instance, might need portable classrooms and additional staffers to catch up with growth, principal Bob Jones said. Baker School might lose one of its four computer labs to offer an extra classroom, principal Thomas Shipp said.

Additionally, Crestview High athletic director and head football coach Tim Hatten wants to build the football program’s brand and find a way to retain a coach in its revolving-door softball program, which has seen four coaches in as many years.

Outside the four concentrated areas, but certainly important, is crime assessment, where we learn that battery and burglaries are the top offenses, and we check in with Crestview Police Chief Tony Taylor for an update on the department’s push toward accreditation.

We see this website as detailing the north county’s general state.

We hope you see it as valuable information.
