The School District of Lee County and Florida Gulf Coast University are joining forces to create Southwest Florida's first Joint PreK-12 Innovative School Initiative.

The school will be designed to offer a high quality education for students, a research center for faculty and a training ground and pipeline for teachers.

According to the agreement between the Lee County School Board and FGCU, the PreK-12 Innovative School will be a contemporary model to develop, demonstrate and cultivate new and different ways of learning. The framework will be through learner-centered Experiential, Exploratory and Expeditionary - Triple E - experiences.

The district and FGCU are committed to working together to find a location for the school, securing state funding, hiring the staff and forming a joint advisory board.
