We are dedicated to extending the reach of communication through on-demand visual story-telling, social media and the District’s Cable access television channel.

Our facilities include a television studio with camera and audio equipment for recording and live production.
Our staff broadcasts School District Board meetings and events online and via Lee Schools TV, Cable access Channel 99, our community educational access cable TV channel provided by Comcast.

Hands-on student internship opportunities are available for high school students interested in the fields of Journalism, Communications and TV Production. Students gain real-world experience as they produce, direct, and provide coverage of many district-wide events for on-demand delivery and also for broadcast on cable television.

The Production Department is also responsible for video recorded messages of the Superintendent and visual information that originates from the Lee County Public Education Center.

Lee Schools TV offers schools an opportunity to showcase their own accomplishments and provide an inside look at the unique events and people that they are most proud of. Schools can upload any video online from their school.
