Hayward Unified School District Announces Carol M White Grant Award
October 4, 2011: Hayward Unified School District (HUSD) has been awarded a $713,000 Carol M White grant from the United States Department of Education. Hayward Unified School District was awarded the highest amount of any school district in Californian to implement the fund full implementation of HUSD YEP recess program.
“The YEP Recess Program, proposes a comprehensive physical fitness and nutrition education program during the regular school day at all 22 HUSD elementary schools to enable Hayward children to meet state physical fitness standards and build lifelong healthy eating and exercise habits. The project responds to the very high rates of weight problems and poor fitness among Hayward children and the existing gaps in PE and nutrition education at the targeted schools and will serve every HUSD elementary school child (approximately 12,000 in all).
We hope that this new funding will help HUSD students be more physically active and eat healthier.
