School Climate

HUSD has integrated its Safe and Inclusive Schools program with the Restorative Justice Practices and the gang intervention strategies provided by the City of Hayward and Alameda County Probation. The Restorative Justice Practices foster supportive and safe school environments so students can thrive as they are able to solely focus on academic achievement. The programs help students and adults to communicate effectively and supportively.  



Youth Enrichment Program (YEP)

A before and after-school program that offers high-quality homework support and enrichment to students in grades K-12. Since its inception in January 1996, YEP has provided a safe and nurturing environment for Hayward children to interact and learn and helped to increase the academic competency of its student population. The HPN grant funds the enrollment of an additional 50 students at both Harder and Park elementary schools. The HPN support also provides Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) enrichment activities to students.
