Vision 2025
3/24/2015 8:28:08 AM

In late spring of 2014, the Vision 2025 Initiative was launched. A lot has been going on behind the scenes so we thought it was time to provide the community with a recap of what has been taking place. Please take a few minutes to watch and listen as Board Chair, Vince O'Brien walks you through the process and what is next as the process continues.  A link has been provided below, but the video is also available on our our District Facebook page.

We are excited to announce the launch of the Hastings Public Schools’ Facebook Page.   As a school district we are always looking for new ways to communicate effectively in order to develop and deepen our relationships with our students, parents, staff and community. As a district we strive to inform, listen to, and engage the community we serve in order to celebrate, support, and share the mission of our district.  Facebook is just one more tool we will utilize to make this happen.
