Lee County Schools Superintendent cleared of any wrongdoing

Published: Updated:

LEE COUNTY, Fla. – The Lee County School Board announced results of a third party investigation looking into accusations against Superintendent Dr. Nancy Graham. The outside attorney cleared the superintendent of any wrongdoing and she will not face any disciplinary action.

The investigation stems from accusations from former school district administrator Alberto Rodriguez. Rodriguez was let go from his position when Graham did not renew his contract after she was hired in 2013. He contacted the Florida Department of Education’s Office of Inspector General, making allegations against Graham and asking for an investigation.

Graham was accused of misleading the school board by embellishing how much money the district would save with her new organizational chart.

In December, the state asked the school district to investigate the claims. After extensive interviews and looking through records, the outside attorney determined the allegations unfounded and Dr. Graham did nothing wrong. School board members say they are happy to put this issue to rest.
