Parent Liaison

The School District of Lee County’s Exceptional Student Education department employs a Family Liaison who will help to assist you with your child's educational needs. The Family Liaison works in conjunction with a variety of community organizations, local support groups, and directly with the people who provide support to your child. You may contact the Family Liaison regarding your child’s Individual Education Plan, concerns regarding the Individuals with Disabilities Information Education Act, or for assistance with navigating the educational system.

Please feel free to call Donna Djerf at (239) 337-8621 or e-mail her at

Many families have helped provide “Parenting Tips”, “Spotlight on Families” and have been instrumental in the development of the “Partnership Links Brochure”. Please jump on board to provide your knowledge and expertise with other families.

Business Partners

Part of effective advocacy for our loved ones who have disabilities is to heighten awareness of the community in general. We are fortunate to live in a very generous area and many businesses have donated to our conferences, meetings, and information sessions that are held throughout the district. We prefer to do business with companies who support ALL of our citizens. We have compiled a list of local establishments and businesses who have contributed to our events. Thank you to each of our supporters!
