BRADENTON, Fla. -- The future of Manatee Schools Superintendent Rick Mills will be discussed at Tuesday evening's school board meeting.

The board will consider proposed contract changes for Superintendent Mills. He's reportedly seeking a two year extension.

Mills was hired as superintendent after the former leader, Tim McGonegal stepped down from his position. The district also faced a deficit in the millions, which Mills has worked to correct.

The school board will also consider a proposal to increase the cost of school lunches by five cents. Also on the agenda: how to handle bus service to charter schools and a policy concerning service animals in schools.

ABC 7's Bobeth Yates is covering this story and will have a report tonight on ABC 7 News at 5 & 6.

    Service animals immensely help disabled individuals with their extensive training to help their disabled owners with their disabilities.

    Per ADA laws, service animals are legally defined as dogs or mini-horses who are trained to assist their disabled handlers with their disabilities.

    It's great to see that the local county school district is considering their policies pertaining to disabled individuals and the use of their service animals.
