Superintendent of Lee County Schools, Dr. James Browder, is asking citizens for their opinions on growth. He hopes they’ll phone in the comments… through a Strategic Listening call-in line.
The district’s used the line several times over the past year – but generally to gather opinions on things like mascots and color schemes for new schools. Now, Dr. Browder wants residents of Lee County – and not just parents – to answer 4 questions he recently asked during a series of community conversations. All 4 questions deal with solutions the district is considering to help get a handle on growth… like double-sessions, portables, and year-‘round schooling. The call-in line also asks if a sales tax—to help pay for growth— would be acceptable. Callers are asked to rank each idea from least to most acceptable by pushing 1 through 6 on their touchtone phones. All responses are confidential. The questions are available in English, Spanish and Creole.
