HAYWARD -- The school board appointed interim Superintendent Stanley Dobbs as permanent head of Hayward schools Wednesday night.
The 4-0 vote came after overwhelming public comments in favor of Dobbs. Trustee Louis Reynoso left the meeting before the vote.
Dobbs took over as interim superintendent in July. He previously was Hayward's assistant superintendent for business services before accepting a job in November as chief financial officer for the San Diego school district.
