The Bradenton Herald and State College of Florida seek your input -- specifically about the current and future state of the Manatee County school district.

Send us your questions, and we'll discuss them at our next Community Conversation. The guests will be Julie Aranibar, chairwoman of the Manatee County school board; and the district's top three administrators: Superintendent Rick Mills; Diana Green, deputy superintendent of instructional services; and Don Hall, deputy superintendent of operations.

And the public is invited to attend this free event from 6-7:30 p.m. April 16 at SCF's Howard Studio Theater, located on the college's Bradenton campus in Building 11 West, off 60th Avenue West between 26th and 34th streets, accessed from Parking Lot I. Details can be found at

We'll address as many of your questions as possible during the forum. Please email those questions in advance to or send regular mail to Editorial Page Editor Chris Wille, 1111 Third Ave. W., Bradenton, FL 34205. And please include your name.

The forum will be broadcast by Manatee Educational Television at later dates.

Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper.
