Dear HUSD Families:

 

I am writing in response to President Trump’s decision to rescind the DACA program. Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the administration’s decision known at a press conference on September 5, 2017. In six months, this would bring to an end a five-year-old program that has allowed young people brought to the U.S. as minors, to work and continue their studies without the immediate risk of deportation. Current DACA beneficiaries will continue to receive legal protection from deportation through March 5, 2018, the deadline given to Congress to replace the policy with new legislation.

 

The Hayward Unified School District (HUSD) firmly believes in supporting our entire community of students and parents, regardless of their immigration status. We join our voice to the chorus of educational leaders from across the country calling on Congress to find a permanent resolution for our deserving young scholars. California is home to over 200,000 DACA recipients and Hayward schools serve the many DACA students—or “Dreamers” as they are commonly referred to —who make important contributions to our community. In December 2016, HUSD’s Board of Education passed Resolution No. 1617-26, a sanctuary district resolution ensuring that every school site is a safe place for all students and families. The district will continue to promote respect for diversity and embrace its principles of inclusion.

 

While the future remains full of uncertainty for Dreamers, HUSD recommits itself to providing all students with a high quality public education in a safe and nurturing environment. Parents should continue to send their children to school with the assurance that schools will remain a safe space for their children. We recognize that you may have many questions about what this decision means for students locally and we will continue to provide updates as information becomes available. Here is a link to the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, which contains helpful information.  

 

I remain inspired by the Dreamers in our school district who work hard to make education the foundation of their greater life aspirations. HUSD educators are equally inspired and committed to stand with our students and help prepare them for college and/or career success. I will hold various opportunities to address your questions, ideas, or concerns throughout the year and I encourage you to join me for a conversation.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Matt Wayne

Superintendent

En Apoyo de los Soñadores de Hayward  

 

 

Estimadas Familias del Distrito:

 

Estoy escribiendo en respuesta a la decisión del Presidente Trump de anular el programa DACA. El fiscal general Jeff Sessions hizo saber ésta decisión de la administración en una conferencia de prensa el 5 de septiembre, 2017. En seis meses, esto traerá un fin a un programa de cinco años que ha permitido que personas jóvenes quienes llegaron a este país como menores de edad, trabajen y continúen sus estudios sin el riesgo inmediato de deportation. Los beneficiarios actuales de DACA continuarán recibiendo su protección legal de deportación hasta el 5 de marzo, 2018, la fecha límite dada al Congreso para reemplazar esta política con nueva legislación.

 

El Distrito Escolar Unificado de Hayward cree firmemente en apoyar la comunidad entera de estudiantes y padres, sin considerar su estatus inmigratorio. Unamos nuestra voz al coro de líderes educativos de todo el país pidiendole al Congreso que busque una solucion permanente para nuestros jóvenes estudiosos. California tiene más de 200,000 recipientes de DACA y las escuelas de Hayward sirven a muchos de los estudiantes amparados por DACA—o los  “Soñadores” como se les llama  frecuentemente —que hacen contribuciones importantes a nuestra comunidad. En diciembre de 2016, la Mesa Directiva del Distrito Escolar de Hayward aprobó la Resolución No. 1617-26, una resolución de distrito santuario  asegurando que cada sitio escolar sea un lugar propicio para todos los estudiantes y las familias. El distrito continuará promoviendo el respeto para la diversidad y sus principios de inclusión.

 

Aunque el futuro permanece inseguro para los Soñadores, el distrito se compromete una vez más a proporcionarle a todos los estudiantes una educación pública de alta calidad en un entorno propicio y seguro. Los padres deben continuar mandando a sus hijos a la escuela con la seguridad que las escuelas permanecerán lugares confiables para sus hijos. Sabemos que quizás tengan muchas preguntas sobre lo que significa esta decisión localmente para los estudiantes y continuaremos proporcionando actualizaciones en cuanto estén disponibles. He aquí un enlace  Centro de Recursos Legales para Inmigrantes, la cual contiene información que pueda ayudarles.

 

Me permanezco inspirado por los Soñadores en nuestro distrito que trabajan duro para hacer que la educación sea la fundación de sus aspiraciones y metas en sus vidas. Los maestros del distrito están inspirados y comprometidos de unirse a nuestros estudiantes y ayudarles a prepararlos para el éxito en la universidad o en su profesión. Voy a tener varias oportunidades de dirigirme a sus preguntas, ideas o preocupaciones durante el año y les animó a unirse conmigo para una conversación.

 

Atentamente,

 

Dr. Matt Wayne

Superintendente

An incoming senior at Hayward's Mt. Eden High School was nominated to serve as a delegate in a selective, nationwide program. Boys State seeks to prepare young men to be the leaders of the future and it boasts notable alumni such as former President Bill Clinton and John A. Perez, the former California Assembly speaker. Mathew Bretz was the only Hayward Unified School District student selected to the program at the statewide level.

The American Legion began the California chapter of Boys State in 1937 with the goal of replicating how local and state government systems should function. Mathew Bretz was a junior at Mt. Eden High School when he was nominated by his history teacher to participate as a delegate. He went on to earn the endorsement of the local American Legion post. When he arrived for the week-long program, which takes place at Sacramento State University, he and 1,000 other young men from across the state were placed into five separate dorms. Each building represented a county, and the members of those counties embarked on a process of electing city, county, and then state representatives.

Mr. Bretz was appointed to serve as a firefighter for his mock city and later, due to staffing issues, he was called to duty as a police officer. Inspired by the experience, Mathew Bretz stated, "It is vital that every American participate in the electoral process and become familiar with their state and local governments." In addition to acquiring public speaking and leadership skills, Bretz ended the program with a new appreciation for the art of consensus building. The experience culminated with the delegates visiting the state capitol, where they had the opportunity to meet state legislators and convene a joint session of the Assembly. According to Tim Aboudara, a Boys State senior staff member, "The program is unique in that it is modeled closely after the California Constitution." Aboudara indicated that every state in the U.S. (with the exception of Hawaii) sends two representatives to the nationwide program, which convenes in Washington D.C. Recently, President Trump welcomed the members of Boys Nation to a ceremony at the White House.

As for Bretz, he plans to apply to UC Davis, San Francisco State, and Stanford to pursue a career in medicine. While he doesn't foresee a future in politics, he's grateful for the opportunity this
program has given him to become more civic-minded.
