Lee Schools Plan for the Fall Semester

School District of Lee County Facebook

The 2020 academic year is right around the corner and with coronavirus cases surging in Florida, many families are debating whether or not to send their children back to physical classrooms.

The School District of Lee County is offering four distinct instructional models for students to choose from for this upcoming semester.

WGCU's Andrea Perdomo spoke last week with Lee School’s Chief Academic officer, Dr. Jeff Spiro, the Director of Curriculum for Elementary schools Dr. Bethany Quisenberry, and the Director of Curriculum for secondary schools, Candace Allevato. They discussed the instructional models families have to choose from and the school district’s plans to keep both staff and students safe.
