The Communications Department is located at 2855 Colonial Boulevard, Fort Myers in the Lee County Public Education Center. The department recognizes the need for parents, the community, staff and the media to be informed about educational news and the issues and stories relating to our school district and our schools.

The department is responsible for the majority of internal and external communication efforts of the District. Communication staff issues press releases, creates District documents (i.e. Annual Report) and provides Web-based programs to the general public and media. Staff also serve as a liaison between schools and the District and local, state and national media. In addition, the Department oversees the District's main Web site (www.leeschools.net).

The Communications Department is also responsible for fulfilling Public Records Requests from the media and the public, according to Chapter 119 of the Florida Statutes. Public record requests may be made to the office in person, by phone, letter or E-mail.
