Meet the New Duval County Public School (DCPS) Superintendent Dr. Diana Greene, from the Manatee School District, who was unanimously chosen to lead the DCPS as its superintendent. At this meeting, we will hear how she plans to take Duval County Schools to its next phase.
Some of her achievements at Manatee School District were the increase of the accountability grade from a C to a B in 2015 and 2017; and, an increase in its reserve fund by $8.2 million in the last three years. She convinced the Manatee voters to pass the tax referendum for higher teacher pay and is knowledgeable of important legislative issues such as school safety.
Duval County has about 200 schools with 128,000 students and 8,300 teachers making it the 7th largest district in Florida and the 20th largest school district in the U.S. The school board’s mission is to provide educational excellence in every school, in every classroom, for every student, every day. Their vision: Every student is inspired and prepared for success in college or a career, and life.
