The Hayward Unified School District (HUSD) is entering into Teacher Salary infographiccollective bargaining with its four employee bargaining units: Hayward Education Association (HEA), Association of Educational Office and Technical Employees (AEOTE), Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Safeco/M&O, and SEIU Para-YEP. The collective bargaining process allows public school employees to bargain with their school district regarding salary, benefits, and other employment-related issues. Each contract is negotiated separately with the bargaining unit’s respective negotiating team. HUSD, HEA, and AEOTE held public hearings on their initial proposals at the March 27, 2019 school board meeting.

 

On Tuesday, May 28, HUSD and HEA initiated bargaining. HUSD has also met regularly with AEOTE since May 3, 2019. Unlike annual reopener negotiations for which the parties open one to two articles each, successor agreements tend to be three-year agreements that allow more articles to be open for negotiations. For this reason, the negotiations process is expected to extend over a longer period of time than in previous years.

 

HUSD’s Goals

At HUSD we put students and families first. We understand that to better serve our students we need to support the staff who directly serve them. We have the utmost respect for our colleagues who work in our schools, classrooms, and offices. During bargaining, our goal is to demonstrate our commitment to support staff and help them meet our students’ needs while remaining fiscally responsible.  

 

Over the past five years, HUSD has increased salaries by 22.1%, and has maintained the second highest salary for mid-career teachers in Alameda county. We have done this despite the larger funding issues facing school districts across the country because our priority is to recruit and retain high quality staff. California ranks 41st in per student spending and our students and staff deserve a greater commitment to our schools.

 

In addition to increasing staff salaries, we have also shown our commitment to students, teachers, and school staff by reaching agreement with our labor partners on issues such as lowering the K-3 average class size and providing employee dental benefits.

 

Bargaining Overview

The present, three-year collective bargaining agreements between HUSD and HEA, AEOTE, SEIU Safeco/M&O, and SEIU Para-YEP expire on June 30, 2019. In 2016, HUSD's proposal included opening the HEA contract in its entirety. This year, HUSD is taking the same approach of opening the contracts in their entirety to allow maximum flexibility should contract language modifications impact more than one article.

 

Current Status of Negotiations

Negotiations between HUSD and HEA and HUSD and AEOTE will continue with scheduled dates into the month of July. We expect to set similar meeting dates with the SEIU negotiating teams. HUSD looks forward to bringing to the negotiations table our intent to honor our workforce and create a better learning environment for students.

At the May 8th, 2019 board workshop, the HUSD Board of Trustees approved the budget for the District Performing Arts Center (PAC) planned for construction on the grounds of Mt. Eden High School. The Performing Arts Center has been in the planning stages for the last several years, and HUSD Performing Arts Center Meetingwith the board’s support will be moving forward to refine the design so that the construction documents can be prepared and submitted to the Division of State Architect for approval.

 

The PAC will be the districts first-ever, stand-alone building specifically dedicated to the visual and performing arts. The PAC is expected to be a beacon of performance arts creativity, enjoyment, and light for our students and the entire Hayward community. The building will serve the entire district in providing a stage for performances, plays, ceremonies, concerts, art shows, and various other gatherings.

 

With this goal in mind, the HUSD board requested that the district administration re-engage with the HUSD staff and community by presenting the most recent PAC architectural plans and design work for discussion and feedback. To accomplish this, the district will be holding two community engagement sessions on June 6th and June 27th.

 

In these engagement sessions, the community will have an opportunity to hear directly from the PAC’s building architect, HUSD facilities leadership, and the Measure H program management team. Anyone can ask questions, learn more about the planning completed to date, and to provide feedback.

 

If you have an interest in the performing and visual arts in our HUSD school district, have suggestions for balancing the use across all grade levels and schools, or want more information about Measure H, this is your chance to be heard! Please, we invite you to attend these meetings and we look forward to hearing from you.” - Allan Garde - Assistant Superintendent of Business Services

 

The meetings will be held at the HUSD District Office (24411 Amador St, Hayward, CA 94544) in the board room. Both sessions will run from 6:30-8:30 PM. All HUSD students, staff and community are invited to attend and contribute to the discussion.

 

If you have questions or comments regarding the PAC or the Measure H Program, feel free to contact us at: MeasureH@HUSD.US

Measure H Bond Update on the Ongoing Solar Project in the District

solar panels

 

 

In early December of last year, the district shared the news regarding the launch of the solar program. Since that announcement, work has continued across district locations with several schools coming online or close to completion. Some of these facilities include East Avenue Elementary, Strobridge Elementary, Treeview Elementary, and Fairview Elementary. In addition to these four locations, work is ongoing at many of our schools with the process for installing the solar arrays in full swing. By the conclusion of this solar project, there will be a solar installation at nearly every active school within the HUSD.

 

Provided for by the Measure H Bond program, the purpose of these large solar arrays is to provide nearly 100% of the required electricity demand for each of the school sites at which they are installed. This is why you will see larger installations at larger schools, such as our high school and middle school campuses. As a side benefit, the structures provide much-needed shade in parking lots, playgrounds, and common areas where they are placed. They will feature charging stations for electric vehicles, some degree of rain cover, parking lot lighting (where applicable), and are built to be durable and long-lasting.

 

While many locations for the installations were easy to identify and came with natural benefits, others have been a challenge to place. The district is working with the local stakeholders of each school site to try and find the best possible solution for each installation. In some locations the choice of where to place the solar arrays is restricted by underground utilities, shade from trees and structures, perimeter restrictions, and building issues. Nevertheless, district administration is dedicated to finding workable solutions that balance benefit against impacts for all of the projects.

 

Collectively, when completed at planned sites, the savings in annual electricity costs provided for by the solar panel installations will go back into the district’s budget for our schools. Early estimates indicate that this will provide for over $2M in annual savings for the district!

 

This program is helping to provide HUSD students with cleaner electricity, better maintained schools, and a healthier planet!
