LEE COUNTY, Fla - Lee County Public Schools has created a Parent Assistance Center to provide parents and the community with information and support as they work with schools to meet their child’s learning needs. The goal is to help families understand the important role they play as part of the educational team.

“Providing the families and the community with information and assistance will support student learning and build strong families and our community,” said Dr. Ruthie Lohmeyer, the administrator overseeing the center.

Supporting the partnership between school, home and the community enables our students to reach his/her own personal potential. The Center’s mission is to provide information and quick references to navigate the District in a seamless and easy fashion as they guide their children toward success.

You can visit the Parent Assistance Center online – it’s part of the District’s Web site (
