About the Board

  • Mission
    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.

    District Strategic Plan
    The District has a Board-approved District Strategic Plan 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 District Strategic Plan 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 District Strategic Plan is evaluated and updated as necessary. A copy of the district's District Strategic Plan 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.
