HAYWARD -- The school district is holding a "Cradle to Career" Education Summit on Saturday.

The summit will include panel discussions on prekindergarten, kindergarten through 12th-grade education, community colleges, universities and vocational programs. A resource fair takes place in the afternoon, along with screening of a documentary on the school district's "Made in Hayward" campaign.

Over the past several months, the school district has collaborated with more than 30 educators and civic leaders to promote education in the city. The public and private groups will share information about the collaboration and their programs.

"Whether you're the parent of a preschooler or a later-in-life learner who's interested in getting your GED or attending college, the education summit has something to offer everyone," said Stan Dobbs, school district superintendent.

The summit takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at City Hall, 777 B. St. It is free and open to the public; refreshments will be served.
