Manatee County Superintendent of Schools Diana Greene has been named the top choice to head the Duval County School District in Jacksonville. Presuming contract negotiations result in her hire, she would leave the Bradenton area for one of the largest school districts in the state of Florida.

Jacksonville radio station WOKV 104.5 reports Greene's experience in Florida schools played a large role in her hire. “She has done some amazing things. She’s bold, she’s not afraid of doing the things she needs to do, she’s done wonderful work in Manatee,” said Duval County Board Member Cheryl Grymes.
