By Dr. Dan Leikvold, Superintendent, Lead-Deadwood-School District, Lead, South Dakota

The Lead-Deadwood School District is a rural district located in the Northern Black Hills of western South Dakota. It has a K-12 population of around 710.  The tourism, gaming, and mining industries are the primary economic drivers in the Lead-Deadwood Community.

Although there are many outstanding opportunities for workers in the area, as with many school districts, we too have our share of challenges that are directly associated with the effects of poverty.  This includes behavioral issues, transiency, limited access to transportation, and a lack of affordable housing.  The free and reduced lunch rate in our district is around 50%.

Over the course of the last ten years, the school district has identified and worked with multiple local and regional agencies to address the needs of our children and families affected by poverty.  We realize we cannot be all things to all people, but we recognize the crucial connection between our children being happy, healthy, safe and supported and their ability to learn at school.
