  • Superintendent Search Survey: Share Your Input

    The Holden R-III Board of Education is about to undergo a very important journey as we set out to select a new superintendent to begin the 2017-2018 school year. As the district moves forward in this process, the Board of Education has employed the Missouri School Board Association’s superintendent search consultants to assist with their search. If you are interested in participating in this process, please take a few moments to complete the survey via the link provided. Input gathered on what qualities patrons and staff are looking for in a new superintendent through this survey and group meetings will be compiled and shared with the board members as they proceed with the search.
