          Lead-Deadwood Elementary
Welcome to the Lead-Deadwood School website. Our mission is that "our students will graduate equipped with the skills needed to be successful and responsible citizens." As students leave the Lead-Deadwood School District in the 21st Century, it is critical that learners of all abilities have been challenged to maximize their potential. Curriculum offerings and learning experiences must prepare students to compete in a changing and expanding world environment. We believe that being curriculum driven is essential in providing an educational environment and the type of learning experiences necessary for students to meet the future with confidence and high expectation.
         The Board of Education and Administration must support students, teachers, and classified staff with the intent of creating high morale and a safe, accountable learning environment, which fosters positive parent, staff, and community involvement. We strive to make decisions based on the overall goals of the curriculum and that are grounded in the principles set forth within the mission and vision of the district. Thank you!
           Dr. Dan Leikvold, Superintendent
