As some of our families and members of the community have already heard, H.O. Brumsted Principal, Jason Smith, will be leaving our Holland family this Friday, March 8. We are grateful for the leadership and talent Mr. Smith has brought to our elementary school and District as a whole. The position of principal is a challenging one and he has carried out his role with great love for the students, families, and mission of the District.
We are already well along in our search for Mr. Smith’s replacement and are currently interviewing a number of highly qualified applicants. Our interview committee is made up of members from our administrative team and faculty and we expect they will identify a candidate shortly. Once approved by our Board of Education, our new principal will start in the month of April. Meanwhile, the building will be covered with our veteran administrators.
The elementary principal position is an integral part of the learning process of all Holland children, and while we wish Mr. Smith all the best in his future endeavors, we are excited to welcome the newest member to our educational community.
If you have any questions about the hiring process, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I look forward to announcing our new principal in the weeks to come.
