Effective bylaws and policies are at the core of successful school district governance. Maintaining bylaws and policies that reflect both local oversight and ever-changing state and federal laws is an enormous task. The Holland Board of Education contracts with Neola for these services.

Search our bylaws and policies manual.

Please note that once the Board of Education adopts a new or revised policy, it may take several weeks before the online bylaws and policies manual reflects those changes/updates.

If you have questions regarding this information, please contact Beth Kooiker in the Superintendent's Office at 616-494-2005.

Parents are often discouraged when they attempt to communicate with central office administrators and school board members and are sent back to building-based officials in order to resolve a problem their child may be experiencing in school. To prevent that frustration, parents can become informed about the “chain of command,” or where to begin the communication sequence regarding their problem or concern.

Many parent and community questions are easily and completely answered by communication directly with the educator in charge of the class or program. Each situation should be first addressed at whatever level the initial action was taken with appeals moving on to the next level on the chain of command. The easiest way to communicate is via e-mail, and a phone call is the next preferable way. Contact information such as e-mail addresses and phone numbers can be found on the district website.
