July 30 Deadline for Choosing Instructional Model

July 30 Deadline for Choosing Instructional Model
Posted on 07/24/2020

Dear School District of Lee County Families,


At the request of the Superintendent and in partnership with our local health leaders, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and current viral infection rate in the State of Florida, the Lee County School Board voted today to approve an updated version of the instructional calendar which pushes back the start date of the 2020-2021 school year to August 31, 2020. 


We understand that the change in start date may affect the instructional model selection some families have already made for their children. Due to this, we are extending the deadline to “Make Your Choice” to July 30, 2020. We invite those families that want to change their choice to resubmit their selection and ask that families that have yet to make their choice, to please do so by the new deadline to allow enough time for prepping and planning.  Failure to respond by the deadline will automatically result in your child being registered for Face to Face instruction. For more information on the instructional models, please visit our School Reintroduction website


Families that have already made their choice can view selection confirmation by logging into their FOCUS account and following the below instructions. **Please note that the more recently made choices may have not yet populated in this platform.** 

  1. Log into FOCUS
  2. Select child’s name(s)
  3. Select “child information”
  4. Select “COVID-19”
  5. Under COVID-19, families can view selected instructional model
    • F = Face to Face
    • C = Lee Home Connect
    • V = Lee Virtual School
    • H = Home School

Additional confirmation will come from your selected school. Schools will also provide information regarding Chromebook and hot spot pick up for Kindergarten, 6th grade, 9th grade, and new students to Lee County.

While Lee County’s Virtual K-8 Summer Expanded Learning program has officially come to a close, student enrichment can still continue using iReady ELA and mathematics. iReady is an interactive online learning program that helps students build essential skills in reading and mathematics. Students can continue to access their iReady ELA and mathematics accounts now through August 13, 2020 via their student launchpad. Click here for access to our Summer Enrichment packet of resources.

Thank you for your patience and partnership as we continue to plan for a safe reopening of Lee County Schools. We are stronger together.
