Lee County School Board member Chris Patricca was recently sworn in as President-Elect of the Florida School Board Association. She will serve in that role for the next year while also continuing to represent District 3 on the Lee County School Board.

Patricca served as FSBA Vice President during the 2019/2020 school year. The entire slate of FSBA officers for the 2020/2021 school year were approved in a unanimous vote during a virtual meeting with school board members from around the state. The new officers are:

  • Jane Goodwin, President, Sarasota County
  • Chris Patricca, President-Elect, Lee County
  • Thomas Kennedy, Vice President, Citrus County
  • Wendy Atkinson, Treasurer, Charlotte County
  • Tim Weisheyer, Immediate Past President, Osceola County

Patricca was elected to represent District 3 on the Lee County School Board in November 2016. In November 2018 she was selected by her fellow board members for a one-year term as Vice Chair. Her current term expires in November.

The Florida School Boards Association (FSBA) provides leadership development opportunities and a vast network for school board members to preserve their mission: to increase student achievement through the development of effective board leadership and advocacy in public schools.
