The Prada Plan for our Schools

We need to prioritize education in Hayward. Here’s a plan to address the biggest issues our schools are facing.

  1. Invest in our Teachers & Students during COVID-19 Crisis 
    • Provide basic equipment for teachers like wifi and computers.
    • Support our students and families to ensure distance learning is easier and effective.
    • Address the growing mental health emergency our students are facing. 
  2. Make Sure Hayward is a Competitive School District
    • Introduce ethnic studies to foster pride and to prepare students for new college requirements.
    • Evaluate special needs (IEP) programs to ensure they are in compliance with the law and students receive their right to an education. 
    • Invest in math education to meet state standards. 
  3.  Ensure the School Administration and Superintendent Listen to the Community and Spend Wisely
    • Hold regular workshops to help parents navigate red tape.
    • Create a culture of serving the community and addressing parental concerns. 
    • Invest our tax money in the classroom to improve school performance and control costs. Right now, we set aside huge amounts of money for lawsuits instead of doing the right thing up front.
