Evers won election for the superintendent's job for the third time earlier this year. He has hed the job since April 2009, serving for six years under Republican Governor Scott Walker.
Businessman Andy Gronik is also running on the Democratic side, while State Senator Kathleen Vinehout has filed paperwork for a campaign.
Evers opposed Act 10, a move pushed by Walker and fellow Republicans in 2011 that rolled back many collective bargaining rights for public employees including teachers and other school district workers.
