Manatee County School District

Manatee County still doesn't have a permanent school superintendent. 

Just days before the Manatee County School Board was going to offer the position to the interim superintendent Cynthia Saunders, the state education commissioner filed an administrative complaint against her.

The Duval County School Board unanimously voted for Florida’s Manatee County Superintendent Diana Greene as its choice for superintendent late Friday afternoon.

A proposal prohibiting local school board members from being paid looks unlikely to go before Florida voters. But term limits for those members and making superintendents appointed instead of elected are moving ahead.
