Hollis School Board

The Hollis School Board holds in trust for the community, as its elected agent, the responsibility of overseeing and ensuring a high-quality education for all students while continuously evaluating outcomes and ensuring a high return on the investment provided by the community. In partnership with the Superintendent, the Board sets the educational direction of the district, empowering and enabling administration and staff for excellence.


We strive to build a high functioning, goals based School Board which listens better than it speaks, builds consensus rather than dictates and leads the district grounding all decisions based in sound policy governance with a singular purpose – education. The Hollis School Board aligns with the SAU 41 strategic plan and establishes student achievement as its top priority.

Major current Board initiatives and Annual Goals are listed in our work-in-progress section of our meeting agendas.

The Hollis School Board holds its meetings in public on the first Wednesday of each month at 6pm in the Hollis Upper Elementary School cafeteria. Members of the community are welcome and encouraged to attend. Alternatively, our meetings are available as a video stream on the web.

Annual Meeting Presentation

The Hollis School Board held it's third and final Energy Study Public Forum on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Hollis Primary School Library, 36 Silver Lake Rd., Hollis, NH. The presentation will include details of the energy study, recommended project proposal, and project funding method for the district school buildings’ heating systems and building energy efficiency improvements.

The public forum provides a presentation on the final building energy efficiency and heating system improvements that the School Board will bring to the voters for approval at the March 7, 2017 annual district meeting. A prior public forum held in October presented the full range of options considered at that time, with detailed cost benefit analysis. Based in part on public input received at that forum, the School Board decided on the preferred project components and a proposal to finance the project using a 10-year municipal lease purchase. All members of the public are invited to attend and ask questions relative to the proposed project.

An advisory group to the project comprised of Hollis School Board and Hollis Energy Committee members, called the Energy Study Working Group, began meeting in April 2016, shortly after the Hollis School District Annual Meeting at which voters approved the funding of a $100,000 warrant article to complete a heating needs assessment for the Hollis Upper Elementary and Primary Schools. With the aid of outside consultants Innovative Natural Resource Solutions LLC and HotZero LLC of Concord, NH, the study included project planning, engineering and other professional services evaluations to determine a final vetted recommendation.

The recommended project components were voted on by the Hollis School Board on January 4 and will be presented for consideration by the voters at the March 7, 2017 annual meeting. Major elements of the project include:

  • Insulation and new windows for the Hollis Primary School

  • Air source heat pumps to provide primary heating for the Hollis Primary School

  • New propane boilers for Hollis Upper Elementary School

  • Two roof-top solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays – one for each school

  • LED lighting for both schools

  • Additional efficiency improvements throughout both buildings to reduce energy usage

CrowdFunding Disclaimer

It has recently come to our attention that a number of fundraising and “crowdfunding” websites (e.g., GoFundMe, DonorsChoose) have been created to raise money for schools, classrooms, extracurricular activities, and other school-related purposes. While we support any effort to give back to the school community and support our students, unfortunately, some of these webpages use the school districts’ name and mascot to, among other things, attempt to get users to make private donations.

If you have any questions about this notice or would like to make a donation to any of the School Districts and/or their programs, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly Seeley, Business Administrator, SAU 41 (central office for all Hollis and Brookline schools) at kelly.seeley@sau41.org or 603-324-5999.
