HAYWARD — Hayward school trustees will meet Tuesday afternoon in closed session to discuss the appointment of an interim superintendent.
The board is scheduled to discuss and vote on a contract in open session at its regular meeting Wednesday, if a contract has been agreed to by both the school district and Stanley Dobbs. The board selected Dobbs as interim superintendent June 8, but the deal isn’t sealed until the contract is signed.
Dobbs, former Hayward superintendent for business affairs, left the district after 18 months of his 24-month contract to take a job as chief financial officer for the San Diego school district in December. In his time in San Diego, he has overseen the sale of previously approved bonds and was able to negotiate a low interest rate, according to a release from that district.
In his time in Hayward, Dobbs was able to turn the district’s finances around so that it was fiscally solvent at the end of the two fiscal years he was here. The district had been operating in the red for years.
Tuesday’s meeting begins at 4 p.m.
