Lee Schools superintendent encourages masks in class despite opt-out

LEE COUNTY, Fla. — According to new data from the Lee County School District, 14,215 students have opted-out from the district’s mask requirement. That’s just shy of 15% of the student population district-wide.

Superintendent Dr. Ken Savage urged parents upset with the masking policy to reach out to people who can actually change it. He specifically referenced reaching out to Governor Ron DeSantis and local legislators.

“Please do not apply pressure to our principals or to our teachers to do things beyond the scope of what they’re able to do,” said Savage.

Savage said he personally doesn’t agree with allowing parents to opt out their children, but he said he must follow the law as ruled by the circuit court.

“My personal attitude is not as significant as the fact that I am in a role. And my role is the Chief Executive of this District. And I am here to enforce the law,” Savage said.

The District said it will use data from local health officials to decide what to do when the mask mandate expires on September 30th.
