Message from the Foundation

Since 1986 the mission of the Foundation has been to enhance the quality of public education in Lee County by increasing community involvement in, and support for, Lee County Public Schools. A diverse group of local business and community leaders realized that the cornerstone of an economically strong community was a quality public education system.

The purpose of every initiative of The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools is to enhance and enrich the quality of public education in Lee County for students and educators. Click on our various Programs to learn more about our students' unique learning opportunities and how teachers themselves are recognized and encouraged in their dedicated efforts.

Florida's newly designed Support Education specialty license plate has undergone an overhaul for the first time in 25 years, with a fresh look that promotes the importance of education in the Sunshine State. While the look has changed, one thing remains the same - your contribution through the purchase of a Support Education specialty license plate directly supports education initiatives in your own backyard as all funds raised through tag sales directly benefit public education where the tag was purchased.

You can drive learning coast to coast by investing in your local school today. Learn how supporting education can a breeze with the purchase of the specialty tag at LicensetoLearnFI.com.

Golden Apple Program

The Golden Apple Teacher Recognition Program™ was the first major project founded and developed by The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools, Inc. Since its inception thirty five years ago as a way to enhance public education by recognizing and rewarding excellence in teaching, the Foundation has awarded 183 educators with the prestigious Golden Apple.

Nomination:

Each year begins with an invitation to students, parents, teachers, administrators and the general public to nominate any Lee County School District teacher who is making an extraordinary contribution to our students. Typically, more than 6,000 nomination forms are submitted each year nominating over 2,000 individual teachers.
