Patrons learn about proposed elementary sites

Hastings Public Schools superintendent Craig Kautz speaks
about a 5-school plan during an informational patron meeting
about the proposed $21.5 million elementary renovation
project Tuesday night at Hastings Middle School.

A small group of citizens seemed pleased Tuesday with the recommended plan for improvements to the elementary system at Hastings Public Schools.

A public forum held at the Hastings Middle School was a chance for patrons to learn more about a possible $21.5 project to renovate and expand five of the district’s six elementary sites.

The proposal, which came about after a year of work by a Community Facilities Advisory Committee, recommends that Alcott and Longfellow, two of the oldest buildings, would receive major renovations and additions. Hawthorne, Lincoln and Watson, three of the newest buildings, would each receive additions to hold more students.
