Hastings Public Schools’ Special Services Department, in partnership with students, parents, and the community, strives to deliver a continuum of services and specially designed instruction to equip learners with skills for lifelong learning and post-secondary success. District 200 provides a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) to students from birth through age 21 who attend both public and private schools. Student needs, goals, services and placement are determined by an IEP or IFSP team. Teams balance appropriate and necessary services with a student’s least restrictive environment to provide specialized instruction and related services.
