LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Current Lee County Superintendent Dr. Joseph Burke is stepping down after two years. He will be replaced by Dr. Nancy Graham.

Her contract will last for one year or until the school board finds a replacement through a national search.

Dr. Graham officially takes over for Dr. Joseph Burke on Thursday.

Dr. Burke is retiring as the state education department looks into allegations he mismanaged money and committed other misconduct.

Dr. Graham will be sworn in this evening at the Lee County Public Education Center.
