This week, you have several chances to weigh in on who should be the next Lee County school superintendent. This year has seen high emotions over issues like face masks, so the Lee County School Board knows this is an important decision.
Many parents obviously had strong opinions over those mask rules, and now the Board wants to hear their opinions on who should be superintendent and what qualities the community is looking for in a school district leader. There are two in-person meetings—Monday at 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday at 9 a.m., both in the School Board Meeting Room at 2855 Colonial Blvd. in Fort Myers—and an online survey which will available until 8 a.m. on Oct. 7. (The survey also comes in Spanish and Haitian Creole.)
As for the search itself, the School District of Lee County plans to post the position sometime in October. Applications will be due by Dec. 13. The Board plans on interviewing finalists the week of Jan. 17.
If you cannot attend either the Monday night or Tuesday morning meeting, both will be streamed live on the LCSD YouTube channel and be available there for viewing later.
