(Tupelo, Ms)(WCBI) As students in the Lee County School District enjoy their last days of Summer, administrators, teachers, and staff are already back at school.

Wednesday morning educators wrapped up an orientation session with Superintendent Jimmy Weeks, Superintendent of Lee County Schools.

Weeks went over his goals for the upcoming year.

"We addressed things like our strategic plan that we revised this Summer. We introduced our staff members to that. Talked about it a little bit and just let them know that they will be going through that in dept with their principals back at their home schools," said Weeks.

Curriculum changes are on their minds and meeting state standards is a priority.

A motivational speaker fired up teachers, so they can reach students who might not be so fired up.

"We have 14 schools and our last enrollment count was little over 7,100," said Weeks.

There will be breakout sessions from now until students return next week.

Superintendent Weeks stressed the importance of the job performed by each teacher and reassured them, he has their back.

"All of us at the central office are here to help teachers. We are here to back them up and to assist them in any way that we can," said Weeks.

Lee County students will be returning to the classroom on August Seventh.
