Lee County:Changes In New School Programs

As the new school year kicks off today in Southwest Florida, thousands of teachers and students are expected to resume classroom work. As usual every new school year comes with different challenges and this year is not exceptional. Some and of the challenges this year include handling growth, new fire drills as well as testing procedures. According to the superintendent of Lee County Schools, Dr. Nancy Graham, parents face the biggest challenge especially if you have kindergarten kids. One of the students Kassandra Machia, a 5th grader said she feels good since she will have something to do and learn about new different things.

New bus routes and alternative ways of examining students will be put in place. Teachers will also have to raise their bar so as to keep up with arrival of first year students. Dr Graham recently touched on how the ongoing growth brings about other responsibilities such as:

· Setting up new buildings

· Increasing staff capacity

In order to meet the increased number of fifth graders, Lee Schools have to hire about 120 bus drivers to facilitate timely arrival of the student since most of them like working and solving equations with the teacher according to Kassandra.

However, many parents do think that students nowadays do much of the classroom stuff even in the absence of the teacher. On the other hand, standard Lee County exams are expected very soon unless the schools fail to meet the threshold of 95% participation rate as required.

Dr. Graham also reiterated on the need to challenge students with new things while at the same time ensuring that slow learners also prosper academically

Lastly, new forces about new fire drills have been put in place and have to be implemented by the district. This is due to investigations that were carried out by NBC2 which exposed lack of drill records in many schools.
