• Strategic PlanStrategic Plan Approved by School Board

    Deuel School Board supported a district wide strategic planning process to help to inform the Board about future goals for the district.

    The survey was conducted between mid-January and early February (2021). The data compilation from the surveys were shared with the School Board and administration at a previous school board meeting.

    Focus group meetings, involving both internal and external stakeholders were held to turn survey themes into goal statements and to devise action steps to accomplish the stated goals.

    Strategic Plan

  • Fall 2021 Return to School Plan
    The Deuel School District will continue to work in collaboration with local, regional, state, and national resources throughout the school year to ensure the health and safety of our staff and students. Protocols and procedures may change quickly as conditions warrant. The District recognizes the importance of in-person learning, therefore will offer only on-campus classes for all students during the 2021- 2022 school year.

    Back To School Plan

  • American Rescue Plan Emergency Relief Requirement for ARP ESSER School District Plan
    The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund was established in response to the immense challenges facing students, educators, staff, schools, and districts in preparing for and responding to COVID-19. The funds are for a wide array of activities to address diverse needs arising from or exacerbated by the pandemic, or to emerge stronger post-pandemic. This includes responding to students’ social, emotional, mental health, and academic needs. Because of the unprecedented, one-time funding available to districts, the South Dakota Department of Education (the department) encourages school districts to invest the funding strategically. Investments should provide sustained benefits to students and positively impact the district long-term.
