Zero Tolerance for Bullying

Discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying are not acceptable ways to treat others. It is the intent of the Hayward Unified School District to provide a process for students, parents, and members of the community to address complaints of bullying to appropriate district personnel and to receive a prompt response to this complaint without fear of retaliation.

Parent Roadmaps to the Common Core Standards - English Language Arts

The Council of the Great City Schools' parent roadmaps in English language arts/literacy provide guidance to parents about what their children will be learning and how they can support that learning in grades K-8. These parent roadmaps for each grade level also provide three-year snapshots showing how selected standards progress from year to year so that students will be college and career ready upon their graduation from high school.
