LWV Jacksonville First Coast Speaker Series: Funding Duval County Public Schools
Join us virtually on May 4 to hear from Dr. Diana Greene about finding funding for one of the largest public school districts.
Dr. Diana L. Greene became Superintendent of Duval County Public Schools (DCPS), the 20th largest school district in the nation on July 1, 2018. She serves 130,000 students within 200 schools and manages a $1.7 billion- dollar budget. During her tenure as Superintendent of Duval County Public Schools, Dr. Greene led the passage of a half-cent sale tax referendum during the 2020 election to help fund district capital needs such as maintenance and repairs on some of the oldest school buildings in the state of Florida.
Dr. Greene was named the 2021 Florida Superintendent of the Year by the Florida Association of District School Superintendents (FADSS); making her the second African-American woman to receive this honor. Prior to her work in Duval, she was the Superintendent of the School District of Manatee County, where she made significant strides forward academically, financially and in terms of its public perception.
During her 33-year career as an educator, she has spent time as a teacher, assistant principal, principal as well as in curriculum development, staff development and in senior executive leadership. On a personal note, Dr. Greene’s father served in the Air Force, and she grew up living in locations all over the United States and abroad.
