Lee County School board recognized as Master Board

The Lee County School Board is being recognized as a Master Board by the Florida School Board Association. To earn the distinction, a majority of the district’s board members and the superintendent must be present for 20 training hours including a Master Board Forum. The leadership curriculum is designed to offer meaningful learning sessions concentrating on student achievement through the four pillars of the FSBA Governance Model: vision, structure, accountability and advocacy.

The Master Board distinction will remain in effect for the period of time in which school board members with their names on the Master Board Plaque continue to serve. The Lee County School Board also earned the distinction in 2015 and 2017.

The Master Board Distinction is one of several leadership development programs offered by the association to ensure board members obtain well-rounded and thorough understanding of their policy-making job responsibilities.

A plaque is being sent the school board to recognize its achievement and it will be displayed outside the board room. FSBA representatives may attend a future board meeting to make a formal presentation.
