Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind,

flight to the imagination and life to everything.

Music Teachers Handbook

The Music Teachers Handbook was developed to assist music teachers of the School District of Lee County with the planning and management of their programs. In addition to containing district policies and procedures which are related to the district instructional program, an effort was made to include reference material which might serve as a guide in developing policies and procedures at individual school sites.
