Aligning Vendor Relations With District Values

The Hayward Unified School District (HUSD) and its Governing Board are committed to fostering equity, inclusion, and acceptance of all of our students and staff. We reject discrimination and are dedicated to achieving and fostering diversity and tolerance in our staff, our school population, and our curriculum. We are also committed to ensuring that these values are essential principles integrated into all District policies, programs, operations, and practices. It is our mission to promote social equity, which includes a supply base reflecting the diverse students, employees, and the rich variety and diversity of families and communities we serve.

As we strive to lead as an ethical role model in the community, we encourage our vendors to join us in our mission of eliminating discrimination in all forms by supporting and sharing our core values. We wish to partner with vendors and contractors who share these values and stand with us in our mission of inclusion and acceptance.

It is the intention of the Hayward Unified School District that in connection with all work performed, materials purchased or supplies provided for the Hayward Unified School District Community, the HUSD and its Vendor partners will jointly work to ensure that: “No person shall be excluded from participation in or denied the benefits of any HUSD program or activity on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, age, ethnic group identification, race, ancestry, national origin, religion, color, or mental or physical disability, including a perception that the person has any of those characteristics or that the person is associated with a person who has, or is perceived to have, any of those characteristics in any program or activity conducted by the HUSD. HUSD vendor partners agree to comply with Federal and California laws including, but not limited to, the California Fair Employment Practice Act, beginning with Labor Code section 1410 and Labor Code section 1735. In addition, the vendor agrees to require compliance by any sub-vendors employed on district projects.
