Lead-Deadwood High School’s School-to-Work Youth Internship Program provides an opportunity to link education and work on a continuous basis by bringing together all the stakeholders in a community to jointly discuss and decide an educational path for students. The core of the School-to-Work approach includes a change in the way students are taught by focusing on application rather than lecture, and by connecting students to the world of work in their community, state and region.

Students are expected to be at their respective training site on all scheduled days during the time specified. Any absences or tardies to work will be treated just like absences and tardies at school: detention, non-credit for class, termination of internship.

The following links have all the information required for the course. Also listed is a general schedule of due dates for assignments. Please bookmark the Classroom Calendar so you won't miss important dates to turn in your coursework.
