Title I Parent Notifications



Dear Parent or Guardian:


In an effort to ensure that all students in the School District of Lee County are provided the highest quality education by effective and skilled teachers, we are continually working to make sure all teachers of core academic subjects meet the definition of “State Certified” under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Core academic subjects include English, reading, language arts, mathematics, civics/government, economics, geography, history, science, foreign languages, and the arts.

In order for a teacher to meet the definition of “State Certified,” they must have:

  • a Bachelor's degree or higher;

  • full State certification; AND

  • demonstrate knowledge of the academic subject area(s) in which they teach.

Although the District makes every effort to hire teachers that meet ESSA’s demanding highly qualified teacher requirements, we would like to inform you that five FMMA teachers are currently non-state certified: Jonathan Barr, Nathan Daume, Emily Hart, Erik Orciuch, & Rebekah Pray. They are all currently working to meet the certification requirement, and the School District has full confidence in their abilities to teach your child effectively.

In addition, FMMA 
is providing on-going assistance to these five individuals so that their prior experience and commitment to education continues to support student achievement in your child’s school.        

If you have any questions regarding the qualifications of Mr. Barr, Mr. Daume, Ms. Hart, Mr. Orciuch, or Ms. Pray, please feel free to contact Mrs. Lynn Edward at 239.936.1759.


Mrs. Lynn Edward
