Welcome to Holt Public Schools

    Superintendent Dr. Hornak

    It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I write to welcome you to the Holt Public Schools!  The Holt Public School District encompasses 32 square miles which include the Village of Dimondale, most of Delhi Township, small portions of Windsor Township, Delta Township and the City of Lansing. The district is comprised of 12 schools: one early learning childhood center, five K-4 elementary schools, two 5-6 schools, one 7-8 junior high school, a 9-12th grade senior high complex with a separate 12th grade north campus, and an alternative high school. Two of our elementary schools operate on a balanced (year-round) calendar. Almost 5700 students are enrolled for the 2015-16 school year. All our schools are equipped with up-to-date technology and media centers/libraries. Our Early Learning Center offers programs and care for children from infant to preschool age, and Holt Community Education offers child care for K-6 students and enrichment programs for school-aged students through senior citizens.  The faculty and staff of Holt Public Schools are ready to connect with you!


    I would like to begin by honoring and thanking Dr. Johnny Scott for his 20 years of service to our school system and community.  Dr. Scott will be remembered for his dynamic vision and his drive to ensure that every student in our system experienced success in our schools in some way each day!  On behalf of the entire school district, I wish you well in retirement, Dr. Scott!


    I have lived and worked in our amazing community for the past 20 years.  My partner Anne and our two children have truly enjoyed the Holt and Dimondale communities and all they have to offer.

    Since June, I have been working to welcome the entire community to our Holt Public Schools family by way of our comprehensive communication plan.  Some of you may access information about our schools through the Ram Quarterly, while others may prefer an email, accessing the website, or receiving updates via Twitter (@HoltPublicSch), Facebook (Holt Schools Advantage), or Instagram (holtpublic). I intend to record podcasts for you and would like to connect with you by leading a book study around the book, "Who Moved my Cheese?"  I encourage you to find a copy of the book as I will be referencing it frequently throughout the year.


    Thank you for your interest in Holt Public Schools! Please consider finding time to tour our website and our schools.  I am driven to maximize student learning by promoting positive behaviors.  I am honored to serve you and embrace the opportunity to celebrate the past and inspire the future of Holt Public Schools.
