Holden R-III School District

About the Board



The mission for Holden R-III School District is for all students, upon graduation, to have marketable skills or the basis to be eligible for post-secondary educational opportunities. 


Comprehensive School Improvement Plan


The District has a Board-approved Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) guided by the mission statement and based on the district's fundamental beliefs about teaching and learning. This plan serves as the district's foundation for allocating resources, developing policies and procedures, and selecting and implementing instructional programs designed to raise student achievement.  


The CSIP was developed through the combined efforts of Board members, staff, administrators, students, parents/guardians and community members and is ongoing. Goals, outcomes or objectives are provided in sufficient detail to direct the improvement efforts of the district for at least a five-year period. The CSIP is evaluated and updated as necessary.  A copy of the district's CSIP is available in the superintendent's office. 

Regular Session Meetings

Regular business session meetings of the Board of Education are generally held the second Monday of each month with the regular business session beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the school libraries as listed on the monthly board agendas.  Regular business session meetings are open to the public. Anyone wishing to address the Board on an agenda item topic must first go through established administrative channels.

Closed Session Meetings


Closed session meetings are generally held immediately after the regular business session meetings of the Board. A meeting may be closed for matters relating to legal actions, leasing, purchase or sale of real estate where public knowledge of the transaction might adversely affect the legal consideration, discussion of hiring, firing, disciplining or promoting of employees, and confidential matters pertaining to students.
