Hayward school board fires troubled superintendent

HAYWARD | After hours of closed session discussion that bookended a tense school board meeting Wednesday night, the Hayward School Board of Trustees voted to terminate the contract of Superintendent Stan "Data" Dobbs.

The school board returned from a second closed session just prior to midnight to report the 3-0 decision.

School board member John Taylor attended the first closed session earlier in the evening, but left early due to an illness, Board President Lisa Brunner reported.

Boardmember Annette Walker did not vote. There was no explanation given for her absence.


  1. Long overdue, but retaining Dobbs would have made no sense. Which is exactly why the nonsensical mayor and city council thought it made sense to keep inept Dobbs around. Stay tuned for the fate of Chief Stuart, because the city manager, mayor and council can forgive just about any criminal activity or checkered past of its top wage earning city government employees.

  2. By MW:

    In regard to the clowns that infest government, and especially in the Bay area.

    When I was younger I was convinced that most of the higher ranking people in virtually all organizations had risen to their positions due to being the smartest, the most honest, the most ethical, the most trustworthy, and basically the best that organization and society had to offer.

    However as I got older and saw how the world really worked, I came to the realization that in in at least many organizations, and in fact quite likely most organizations, and extra especially in the Bay area, the ones who usually rise to the top are the very biggest and most extreme of the snakes, embezzlers, money launderers, alcoholics, and the very sleaziest of the scumbags.

  3. what a display yesterday at the end of the board meeting!!!! My god!! any body know the name of that women who was screaming her longs out telling doctor Reynoso that he was done!! if anybody whants to know the definition of a GHETTO person just look a her!! thas what he is.And when you think that you are surrounded by civilized hihgly educated people, i heard shes a teacher!! then you see this behaivior..

  4. People of Hayward have losts their minds. Balls to the wall to keep corrupt and morally bankrupt fools in highly paid postions of responsibilty.

  5. @6:26, you didn't pay much attention to YOUR teacher, the lessons about spelling and punctuation.

  6. 7:28!! Are you that GETTHO teacher? if your not then i must assumed your are one of the highly educatted GETTHO person im reffering to.and yes my spelling is horrible but your stupidity is of much much greater concern, really the only thing you can came up whit is critize some one for their spelling and grammar.The good thing is that you understand what im writting!!!

  7. @6:26pm. I am a parent at Sheldon Elementary in Richmond and my retired mom lives still lives in this armpit of the bay Hayward. I lived in Hayward for the first 23 years of my life before moving to Richmond. The person you mentioned, her name is Melissa Sigars, when she saids her name and that she tells all that she is a teacher she is lying. When I first saw her last year supporting this trashy sup Dobbs then I started to pay more attention on this woman. She is actually the principal of Sheldon Elementary at the West Contra Costa Unified School District. She is very ghetto at the school too. We don't like her there either as a principal and do not understand how she got to be the principal with such ghetto attitude. I watched that meeting from work and the public got too see ghetto in action from Sigars and her friends of College Bound.

  8. @10:03
    Thank for you the name of that GETTHO teacher. So my question is ,why she got involve in the mess if she is not even part of the HUSD.Melissa Sigars ,what a puece of work!!!

  9. current Hayward school board member Luis Reynoso “a disaster” for the district.He is somebody who causes dissent,“One person can ruin a board; a bad board can ruin a school district. That is happening right now. I can’t think of any more reason to support these people up here running than to get rid of Luis Reynoso.”he is just like another Trump...)

  10. @dzzuy I know who you are and I must say you are very corrupt. Talking about the pot calling the kettle black. Yes we do need Reynoso since he is the only one with any backbone to put his foot down and take a stand against the Stan Dobbs, CLASS pop cycle stick trash monkey candidates....lol
