LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Outgoing Lee County School Board Superintendent Dr. Joseph Burke gave his last speech before retirement today.

This morning, he addressed local leaders at the State of the Schools Breakfast in Fort Myers. There, he discussed the progress over the past school year.

Dr. Burke is retiring amid an investigation into whether he mismanaged money, and if he suspended an investigation into an employee, but he is citing health and family as reasons for stepping down.

Dr. Burke's last day is June 19th.
