HAYWARD -- Mayor Michael Sweeney will swear in Stanley Dobbs as interim superintendent at Wednesday's school board meeting.

Dobbs was hired by trustees to replace Donald Evans, who took over as Berkeley superintendent at the beginning of July. Dobbs returns to the district after leaving at the end of November to accept a job as chief financial officer for the San Diego Unified School District. He previously was Hayward's assistant superintendent for business services.

During his recent State of the City address, Sweeney called on the school district to boost student performance. In a release, Dobbs said the district is taking steps to answer that call, including a plan to boost graduation rates.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at Hayward City Hall Council Chambers, 777 B St.
