On a historic day commemorating the Cesar Chavez holiday, Monday, March 31, City of Hayward officials, faith, educational and business leaders joined together in support of the Yes for Kids campaign held at Burbank Elementary School. The campaign is to promote school bond Measure I, a $205 million bond measure that would pay for renovations and modernizations of public schools in Hayward.
Those who attended the Yes for Kids Campaign event enjoyed free food and fun prizes, as well as great entertainment by the award-winning Mt. Eden High Choir and Tennyson High School Jazz Band Combo as they performed together live on stage. In addition, Spanish Radio Station Recuerdo 100.3 FM gave away great prizes.
Measure I will be placed before voters on the June ballot. Voting Yes Measure I affirms our commitment to invest in the quality of our Hayward schools and protects the value of all the homes and businesses in the Hayward community. Many of our schools are over 45-years-old and are in need of major renovations and repairs. Our children deserve to learn in modern school facilities where a safe and vibrant learning environment can take place. All of the funds from Measure I will be used for specific school facilities projects in the Hayward Unified School District. No funds will be used for administrator or teacher salaries. In addition, an Independent Citizens Oversight Committee will monitor all bond funds.
