Administrative Resources

In the Littleton Elementary School District, we have a clear vision. We strive to ensure that every student succeeds and receives excellence in education. All students are capable of success; there are no exceptions! Every member of our administrative resource team makes decisions that consider the student first. They also consider how those decisions will affect student success. Our organization consists of our superintendent, Dr. Roger Freeman, who leads our two chiefs, each with specific responsibilities. Our team makes decisions collaboratively and authentically. These decisions range from curriculum development and hiring to food choices and building maintenance. We are a culture of exploration, innovation, and core values. We welcome your ideas and appreciate your support. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns that you may have. We are here to serve the Littleton ESD community.

    Dr. Lisa Haid has served in the Littleton Elementary School District #65 since the 2007-2008 school year.

The continued care, support, and appreciation from both the internal and external communities drove her to view being in Littleton as much more than a job. 

    The foundation of Dr. Haid’s educational experience began in the classroom where she became a National Board Certified Teacher early in her career. After receiving her master’s degree, she served as an instructional coach in an elementary setting as well as adjunct professor roles at the University of Phoenix and NAU. These roles led her to Littleton where she has since received her doctorate and used her well-rounded educational experiences to understand all aspects of the educational environment and succeed in her administrative roles. During her years of service, Dr. Haid has been the executive director of human resources and the chief academic officer. She has also participated in a number of professional organizations such as AASA, ASA, AASPA, and AASBO, connecting Littleton to the most up-to-date discussions about what is occurring in the profession.
