“[Stepping down from the Board] is a big regret for me. I’ve very much enjoyed it and I think this work is very important. I look forward to continuing being part of the discussions as a community member, just not as a Board member,” Hastings announced at the meeting. “I’m happy to continue to assist in my professional role and in my personal role. There’s amazing work going on in the school division.”
