Golden Apple Program
It’s that time of year again. Nominate any Lee County School District Teacher who you think deserves to be a Golden Apple.
The Golden Apple Teacher Recognition Program™ was the first major project founded and developed by The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools, Inc. Since its inception thirty two years ago as a way to enhance public education by recognizing and rewarding excellence in teaching, the Foundation has awarded 177 educators with the prestigious Golden Apple.
Each year begins with an invitation to students, parents, teachers, administrators and the general public to nominate any Lee County School District teacher who is making an extraordinary contribution to our students. Typically, more than 2,000 nomination forms are submitted each year.
