Bonds

Thanks to the support of Hayward voters, our schools have received funds to improve student safety, repair aging facilities, modernize classrooms, and construct state-of-the-art learning spaces. The Hayward Unified School District thanks the community for sharing our commitment to provide safe, modern learning environments for our students. 

Oversight (CBOC)

Proposition 39 requires school districts that pass school bonds to seat a Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) to assure the community that bond funds are expended in the fashion outlined in the district's bond resolution. The CBOC must meet at least once a year and inform the public about the expenditure of bond revenues. The CBOC shall actively review and report on the proper expenditure of taxpayers' money for school construction.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

 

Measure i
Fairview School
Measure I is a $205M school safety and construction bond measure that was placed on the June 3, 2008 ballot. Measure I sought to improve safety and learning by constructing, furnishing, and equipping school facilities; reconstructing, rehabilitating, or replacing deteriorating schools; and providing security systems, new or modernized permanent classrooms, land for construction, wireless technology, and access for individuals with disabilities. It passed by a vote of 72%.                                                                                                                                                             
Measure L

In November of 2014, Hayward voters approved Measure L by a vote of 77%. The vote authorized the issuance of $229M in bonding authority for the construction, modernization, and upgrades of schools. Several projects across the district are in different phases of design and construction as a result of this funding. These include a new elementary school, athletic fields at two of the district’s other high schools, and new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) buildings that will support an interdisciplinary project-based curriculum in partnership with Cal State East Bay.

 

Measure H

The Facilities Master Plan, created in 2004, outlined a 20-year plan to invest in necessary repairs and upgrades to our schools. Measure I in 2008, and Measure L in 2014, initiated the process of addressing identified needs, but major facility repairs and upgrades still need immediate attention. Measure H, a $381.7 million bond measure, was placed on the November 6, 2018 ballot and passed by a vote of 72%. Measure H will provide funding to continue addressing needs identified in the Facilities Master Plan, as well as complete facility upgrade projects already in progress.
