Lead-Deadwood Schools Begin Long Range Planning

Declining enrollment and multiple school locations have Lead-Deadwood School District officials looking forward to increase efficiencies as well as updating classrooms, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The district is currently considering several options and will present options to the public at a later date.

Plan A, estimated to cost $4.8 million, recommends maintaining the district’s three school sites, which includes code enforcement updates at the elementary school and building improvements at the middle and high school buildings. Plan B, a $13.2 million estimate, would close the middle school in Lead while updating the elementary and high schools to include all grade levels. Plan D, estimated at $5.6 million, would move all of the schools to Lead, sell the elementary school in Deadwood, and relocate elementary grades to the current middle school, and the current middle school to the existing high school.
