BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Wilder School Superintendent Jeff Dillon has filed to run for state superintendent of public instruction in 2018.

Dillon, a Republican, is the first candidate to file for the position after current Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra announced she would also be seeking re-election.

Dillon has worked as Wilder’s superintendent since 2012. Previously, he was an elementary school principal, and a middle school science and reading teacher.

In 2014, the schools chief race attracted a wide range of candidates with mostly educator backgrounds and almost no political experience. Ybarra narrowly won the election despite facing a rocky campaign and raising little funds.
