The Hayward Unified School District’s Board of Education will be accepting  applications to fill a vacancy on the board that was created when Dr. Luis Reynoso was elected to an open Chabot-Las Positas Community College District seat in the November 2020 election. We appreciate Dr. Reynoso for his service to the Hayward community in his capacity as trustee for the last 12 years and wish him well as he continues his service in support of our local community college district.

The Board of Education will undergo the appointment process to appoint a new board member. The appointee will hold office until the next regularly scheduled Statewide General Election for governing board members, which will take place on November 8, 2022, or if and until a special election is required by a petition of district voters.
