Our Mission

Education has the power to change lives. Adequate funding, well-rounded curriculum, and accomplished educators are important components for setting a stage for high student achievement. The Education Committee examines funding and accountability for our public schools and tracks education bills before the Florida Legislature.

Program Description, 2020-2021

Goal:

  • Support and influence the promotion of high standards for student achievement through adequate funding, well-rounded curriculum and the highest levels of professionalism for teachers, administrators and school board members in the Collier County Schools.

Supporting Objectives:

    • Educate our members and the community about the Collier County public and private school systems.
    • Support and advocate on behalf of adequately-funded, high-quality Pre-K learning opportunities for all Collier County children.
    • Research and discuss current school district and preK-12 education issues to identify those that deserve further study. Report these findings to the League Board and membership for consideration for advocacy.

Action and Advocacy:

  • Promote civics education in public and private schools.
  • Promote adequate funding for high-quality early childhood, public school education programs.
  • Monitor Florida legislation relative to the education program and take appropriate action.
