Hayward: School District Needs Community's Help with Reducing Truancy

Hayward Unified School District has joined forces with the Hayward Police Department in a campaign to improve school graduation rate, according to a press release. 

Hayward businesses and community organizations are participating in the “Student Success Starts with Attendance” campaign by placing Truancy Enforced Decals in their establishments, which will hopefully help students stay in school to improve attendance and graduation rates.

Students are encouraged to stay in school during school hours (generally 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.) instead of loitering at local businesses.

Businesses are being asked to call Hayward Police’s Truancy Enforced telephone number if a student won’t leave or if there is a concern with the student. An officer will respond and assist the student’s return to school.

The school district and police department are asking for the community’s support in encouraging students to attend school every day.

If you need to report truancy, please call (510) 293-7000.

San Leandro School District and San Lorenzo School District have also started campaigns to reduce truancy.
