Voters within the Lee County School District overwhelmingly approved a $15 million bond issue in 2020. A majority of the funds were used to construct a new career and technical education center for LCSD students. The 33,000 square foot complex is located at the Community Development Foundation’s newest industrial park called the HIVE. Students started attending classes there in late 2021.
Lee County School District voters approved an $8 million bond issue in 2022 to fund a variety of construction projects throughout the district. Most of the money will go toward new extracurricular facilities and the renovation of existing facilities on campuses across the district. Work begins in the summer of 2022 on most of the projects, which should be completed for use in the new school year.
The Lee County School District provides a high-quality education in a safe, healthy environment and develops lifelong learners who become productive members of society.
