Student Recognition by Board

The Board of Education honors students for their exemplary work, actions or dedication either at or outside of school. See photos of our recent Board of Education Recognition of Students and Staff.

Board of Education Function

The primary function of the Board of Education is to oversee the education of people in our community. The Board is responsible for establishing and implementing all district policies and procedures required to maintain an excellent educational program for all students in a safe, secure learning environment. These policies and procedures guide the Superintendent and staff in their daily duties.

Board of Education Meetings

The Zeeland Board of Education conducts its regular monthly meetings at 6:00 p.m. in the Zeeland West High School cafeteria, 3390 100th Avenue, unless otherwise noted in the below schedule. These business meetings provide time for you to address the group with your remarks. This opportunity occurs at the start of each meeting during “acknowledgment of visitors.” Each person is allowed five minutes to give comment. We encourage to you contact the superintendent’s office ahead of time if you plan to speak to the board. This ensures that you are recognized at the start of the meeting. The Board occasionally announces a work study meeting to discuss one topic at length.  We will list work study meeting dates and times in advance.

Special Accommodations

Persons with disabilities who need special accommodations when attending school board meetings should contact Mary Miilu in the Superintendent’s office at 616.748.3002 three days prior to the meeting.
