The Hayward Unified School District (the “District”) owns approximately 8.37 acres of real property located at 520 Jefferson Street, Hayward, CA 94544; APN’s 452-68-95-3 & 452-56-9-2 (the “Property”). The District is currently seeking proposals from qualified proposers to purchase or lease the entire Property in its AS IS condition. The Property is being sold by an RFP Process.
This property is one of four properties for sale or lease by the District.
The Property is the previous home to Bowman Elementary School which closed in 2022. The buildings were originally constructed in 1951 and contain various school facilities totaling approximately 29,916 square feet. As of 2021, estimated cost of repair for major infrastructure only was estimated at $10,200,000. Additional property information, including the Facilities Master Plan Update, can be found here. A copy of the cost estimated from the Facilities Master Plan Update is included in Exhibit A. The Property has been the target of recent vandalism which could affect its immediate use.
Additional Information (Background & Context)
On June 22, 2022, the District’s Board of Education adopted Resolution 2223-09 to declare the Property as “exempt surplus Land.” The District has completed all requirements under the California Surplus Land Act; the Property is designated as exempt surplus land. Furthermore, on September 28, 2022, the District’s Board of Education adopted Resolution 2223-15 authorizing approval for the District to seek a State Board of Education waiver so that a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) could be issued and declaring its intention to sell or lease the Property in accordance with the terms of the resolution. The District applied for and received a waiver from the State Board of Education allowing the District flexibility in the bidding and sale of the Property. As a result, the District is able to use a request for proposal process, and is not bound to select the successful proposal solely on the basis of price. In compliance with statutory requirements and the Board-adopted resolution, the District has offered the Property for sale and/or lease to a number of designated agencies. The period in which agencies and other entities with statutorily preferential rights may make a priority offer for the Property has closed and the District now intends to extend its offer of the Property for sale or lease to the public at large. The 7-11 Surplus Property Advisory Committee, a community advisory board tasked with reviewing the site and compiling community centric recommendations to the Board of Trustees, compiled a report of their
findings and priorities. The full report can be found here. Proposers are encouraged to consult the report as a point of reference. The Board of Trustees are the ultimate decision makers and respect and appreciate the community’s recommendations. The District will review all Proposals separately. The District reserves the right to reject any and all Proposals and to withdraw the Property from sale or lease.
