Superintendent's Report

Superintendent Collins introduced Aaron Nielsen, from the auditing firm, Malloy, Montague, Karnowski, Radosevich & Co., who gave a detailed report to the school board on the findings from the fiscal year July 1, 2011-June 30, 2012. There were no findings to report and the school district was given a clean opinion. Complete audit information can be found on the district website at www.hastings.k12.mn.us

Mr. Collins then introduce some informal information to the board regarding where the Hastings School District ranked in an impromptu survey compiled from area school districts after board members raised the question of the number of days and minutes students in Hastings attend school. The survey, of 10 area districts, shows that the Hastings School District ranked 1 in annual hours students are in school. Collins noted that this was an informal survey and that most districts are within a day or two of each other when it comes to the number of days students attend. In addition, the school day at all district sites was increase two years ago which is one reason that Hastings ranked ahead of other area schools but again, Collins reminded the board that all schools are within 20-30 minutes of each other.
