In June, of this year, the Hastings School District surveyed over 400 residents on a variety of questions related to the Hastings School District. The survey was very specific in making sure that the same number of females were interviewed as males. In fact the survey also pinpointed, and interviewed, residents from all age groups above 18 years old. This is the second time, during my tenure as superintendent of the Hastings School District, that we have conducted such a survey. The last time such a survey was conducted was in 2006.
