SUPERINTENDENT SEARCH:  Holland Public Schools is beginning the process of hiring a new superintendent following the announcement of the retirement of Dr. Brian Davis. The Board of Education is working with the Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB) to engage the community in an inclusive process that leads to the selection of a new superintendent. Residents of the district, all staff, and administrations are encouraged to participate in the process.

A series of online meetings will give the community the opportunity to give their input on the the qualities, experiences, and skills they believe the next superintendent will need to be successful.

You can also participate in an online survey to help MASB identify candidates for superintendent.

BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETINGS: The publicly elected seven-member Board of Education is responsible for setting policy for the district. Each trustee term is six years long and trustees serve without pay. Trustees meet several times a month. At regularly scheduled meetings, there is always time for public comments.
