The 2020 school year ended like no other with schools across the world closed and students learning virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But LEAD’s mission to prepare all of our students with the knowledge and skills to succeed in college and in life remained strong.
This year’s LEAD Report theme – Creating Beauty in the Midst of Chaos – shares how, despite all of the challenges we faced, our students and staff continued to persevere.

In addition to stories and statistics, the report showcases the spectacular artwork our students created throughout the school year.
“We feel like this is the perfect example of how our LEAD students, families, faculty, and staff have handled 2020,” said CEO Dwayne Tucker. “In the midst of all the changes, unrest, and uncertainty, our students continue to create beauty in their work and find beauty in learning.”
“I cannot begin to express my pride in the LEAD family for adapting, innovating, and making the best of undoubtedly the most unusual year. While many things have changed, the most important thing remains: LEAD is committed to helping all of our students succeed.”
The report also highlights the work of our staff who stepped up to meet the social, emotional, and physical needs of our students during this crisis. Our “Serve Others Stations” served more than 450 families total in 2020. More than 180 families received boxes of food, cleaning supplies, and toiletries to make ends meet directly at their homes and families and staff received 200 hotspots for internet connectivity.
LEAD teachers and staff continue to keep students engaged and learning from home with the same academic standards in place as in-person learning. Attendance remains above 93% at all of our schools during remote learning, with almost 40% of students having perfect attendance.
We are proud of the hard work and dedication of every member of our LEAD family. We hope you will continue to learn more by reading the full report: https://leadpublicschools.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/lead-2020-WEB.pdf
