Faith, Family and Future.
A spectacular place to call home.
The Village Of South Holland is a spectacular place to call home! It was incorporated in 1894 and at that time South Holland’s population was about 1000 and today it’s a vibrant community with a population of about 22,000. Stitched in the fabric of this flourishing community are it’s core values of Faith, Family & Future
The area currently occupied by South Holland, Illinois, was first settled in 1846 by immigrants from South Holland, Netherlands. When the community formally incorporated as a village in 1894, its population was about 1,000. Originally a general farming community, it later specialized in vegetable growing, especially onion sets. By the 1940s South Holland was known as the "Onion Set Capital of the World". The town was built on low ground near the Calumet River and was originally called de Laage Prairie (Low Prairie) to differentiate it from another Dutch settlement further north on higher ground and called de Hooge Prairie (now the Roseland neighborhood of Chicago).
South Holland is an anomaly in Chicago Southland because of its laws. Most businesses are closed on Sunday, though retail establishments are permitted to remain open. This can be seen easily when driving on one of the village's main thoroughfares—162nd Street or South Park Avenue. South Holland is a "dry" municipality; that is, no alcohol is sold anywhere within the village limits. Additionally, the sale or rental of pornographic material is prohibited in South Holland. The village's franchise agreements with cable television providers restrict adult-oriented programming. Zoning restrictions do not allow the development of apartment buildings or condominiums. These laws are a remnant of the village's religious roots as a settlement of conservative Dutch Reformed immigrants. Even today, South Holland's motto is "A Community of Churches".
Transforming Educational Visions into Successful Realities
November 15, 2019, is the official statewide observance of School Board Members Day in Illinois. This honorary day is an opportunity for staff, parents/guardians and community/business members to show appreciation for our Board of Education and its commitment to providing a unified voice and direction for the district’s educational vision and mission.
South Holland District 150 School Board Members continue to “transform educational visions into successful realities” by considering the hopes and thoughts expressed by our parents, community/business members and staff. This Board continues to create educational opportunities and pathways leading to successful learning experiences for each child, every day, in every classroom. District 150’s School Board Members serve the public as unpaid volunteers for the benefit of all students within our community. They dedicate a significant amount of their own personal time to this district by attending regularly scheduled and special meetings, extracurricular events, participating in professional development opportunities, and working long hours to ensure all students have access to educational resources and academic supports needed to become successful learning. Thriving communities have successful schools that prepare all students to become college and career ready and hopefully, they will make positive contributions to their community and positively impact the local economy.
On behalf of the South Holland School District 150’s administrative team, staff, students, families and community/business members, we salute and thank our Board members for their hard work, ongoing support, commitment and dedication to the district and community!
