Hayward Unified Superintendent fired after 3-month investigation

HAYWARD, Calif. (KGO) -- The superintendent of the Hayward Unified School District is out of a job. The vote came early Thursday morning and many people are angry over the school board's decision.

Stan Dobbs had been under investigation for three months. In his termination notice, they say he has an explosive temper, has engaged in dishonest acts, has violated state law and has failed to keep the board informed.

"Due process and due diligence has been given and I appreciate folks who understand that we cannot always say what's going on because of personnel reasons," said William McGee, school board member.

The Hayward Unified School District Board of Trustees voted 3-0, with two board members not voting.

Hayward has gone through four superintendents since 2010.

A news conference is expected on Thursday where the board president and the investigator who looked into Dobbs are expected to speak.
