Hayward School District votes to close two elementary schools

HAYWARD, California (KRON) – KRON4’s Camila Barco is in Hayward, where the Board of Education has decided to close Bowman and Strobridge Elementary Schools next year.

The decision was made due to budget deficit and declining enrollment.

Enrollment has fallen by 25% over the past 20 years.

The Hayward Unified School District is built to serve 24,000 students, but enrollment is expected to drop to 18,000 over the next few years.

A transition plan will be implemented so that teachers can move and keep their jobs and students can change smoothly.

The district also considered closing Glass Broke Elementary and Ochoa Middle, but has held that decision so far.
