Vision 2025 - Survey - We want your feedback!
10/3/2016 4:00:07 PM

Vision 2025, Hastings Public Schools’ plan for continuous improvement, began approximately three years ago.  Since then, we’ve hosted dozens of conversations to seek ideas and input as to how to make ISD 200 the highest quality school system for all of our students.  At its core, Vision 2025 intends to engage in consistent communication with our families, and members of the larger community.   We’d like to begin this year seeking feedback about some District practices and your responses will help inform our next steps in making District 200 even better. 

Please click on the link below to participate in an online survey.  Thank you in advance for your time and thoughts.
