Equity & Inclusion
Educational equity is a shared responsibility to ensure every student receives the proper educational opportunities to thrive. Our district's success depends on our commitment and willingness to confront inequities. We will dismantle institutional and systemic barriers by creating policies and practices to create equitable access for all of Holland's students, teachers, staff, and administration.
Holland Public School District believes and honors all students, ethnicity, identity, sexual orientation, and ability. Students must be given meaningful and engaging learning opportunities and allowed to grow in a forever growing global society.
