School Board

Special Announcement In response to Governor Waltz's recent "Safe at Home" order, MSBA has changed their policies on how School Board Meetings are held. MSBA's current recommendation is for School Board members to meet via phone conference or through the use of some other electronic means. Due to the health pandemic, the Hastings ISD 200 School Board has determined that it is not feasible for at least one board member, the Superintendent, or the school district's legal counsel to be physically present at the regular meeting location. It is also not feasible at this time for the public to attend future meetings at this time at the regular meeting location due to the health pandemic. For this reason, future meetings will be held via Zoom meetings whenever possible. The meetings will also be recorded for viewing by the public and streamed live whenever possible.

Special Notice: Second Round Interview

Due to the Governor’s Executive Order there has been a change in how the final round interviews are going to be held on April 2nd.  Instead of holding three community listening forums in person, the forums will be recorded and posted on the website for public viewing. This will still allow those community members who are willing and able to watch all three of the community listening forums the ability to complete an online feedback form.  This information will then be provided to Hastings School Board members for consideration before deliberations occur. 

Again, while all community members are welcome to view these live streams of the community listening forums, only those that can listen to all three will be able to provide feedback.  This is done to ensure that there is a fair process for all of the candidates involved. 

Community forums will be made available on the Superintendent Search news portion of the website.  To find more information about this please click HERE.
