African American Student Achievement Initiative

We would love your feedback! Please help us re-organize our AASAI group by filling out a survey to better collect data on how we can support our families!

AASAI is a Hayward Unified School District (HUSD) initiative that focuses on bringing about equitable, systemic, and transformative change in teaching and learning to more effectively address the academic, social and emotional needs of its African American students and the families and communities that nurture and support them.

AASAIs four priority areas are as follows:

  1. Closing the Achievement Gap – Study, evaluate, and make recommendations on the effectiveness of approved intervention and acceleration strategies in order to address the pervasive, persistent under-performance of AA students in HUSD.
  2. Cultural and Linguistic Responsive Pedagogy - Ensure that school personnel are appropriately trained, supported and held accountable for the successful implementation of culturally and linguistically responsive professional development and pedagogical practices.
  3. School Climate - Study and evaluate the effectiveness of district-wide behavioral policies and practices and their impact on African American students.
  4. Family Engagement - Promote and strengthen AA family engagement through community partnerships and deep alliances with local school sites.
