Teachers - this is where you come in!

We want to provide a public forum for teachers to freely communicate with their students, parents and other families that can use the support.

Lee County Schools | COVID-19 Impact
With the recent COVID-19 pandemic, families had to register each of their students for one of four instructional models, including traditional face-to-face learning as well as two virtual methods and parent-led homeschool.
Across the county, most students, at a rate of 58%, want to learn virtually, with about 39% signing up for Lee Home Connect and 19% for Lee Virtual School. While both offer virtual, distance learning, the two options are very different in structure.
Lee Virtual is its own K-12 public school that requires a heavy lift on students to stay on target throughout a full school semester. It is flexible in terms of when work can be finished, but students will still need to stay on top of assignments to meet deadlines set by their instructor.
Lee Home Connect is an all-new virtual offering that the district came up with to keep students attached to teachers at their normally assigned school, but from the comfort of their home.This model follows the typical instructional day, with bell times and lunch breaks, and will feature live instruction five days a week.
This leaves a huge disconnect between our students and teachers. Some families are not equipped to fully support their child learning.
Submit your resources, tips & tricks, whatever little tidbit you believe will benefit our parents/student in the form below.
