CASTRO VALLEY, CA — [October 16, 2023] — Castro Valley Unified School District is proud to announce the opening of the brand-new Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center. This healthcare facility, located at Castro Valley High School, is set to provide essential services to the students and community, furthering the commitment to the health and well-being of the Castro Valley community.
The Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center will serve as a vital resource, offering a wide range of healthcare services, including primary care, sport physicals, immunizations, confidential services, and more. It will be staffed by highly qualified healthcare professionals dedicated to ensuring the physical and emotional well-being of students and their families.
This initiative reflects the dedication of both organizations to address the healthcare needs of the community and create an environment where students can thrive academically and personally.
The partnership with Fremont Bank Foundation has been instrumental in making this project a reality. Their financial support and ongoing commitment to community health align perfectly with the mission of the Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, which has a long history of serving the Bay Area's vulnerable populations. We are extremely grateful to Fremont Bank Foundation for the ongoing relationship and support of the school district and their financial support of $100,000 for facility modifications needed to open the clinic.
“At Fremont Bank, we know that education along with physical and mental health is important for our youth,” said Brian Hughes, Executive Vice President at Fremont Bank and President/Executive Director at Fremont Bank Foundation. “Our Foundation’s partnership with Castro Valley Unified School District and Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center is a natural fit for the people and youth in our community. We are excited to know this clinic will be taking care of people for many years to come.”
The grand opening of the Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center at Castro Valley High School will take place on October 23, 2023 at 4:00 p.m. Local officials, community leaders, and representatives from Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Castro Valley Unified School District, and Fremont Bank will be in attendance to commemorate this significant milestone.

To date, the District has conducted four public hearings as part of the District's transition from "at-large" to "by trustee area" elections. Based on online feedback and discussion at the map public hearing on June 14th, the demographer created two additional map options – Scenario 4A and Scenario 5. The original 4 draft trustee area maps will remain under consideration along with the newly released map options – totaling 6 options under consideration. Scenario 4A was created in an attempt to follow elementary school attendance areas. Since the attendance areas cross through or split up Census blocks, it is not possible to keep these areas perfectly intact, but Scenario 4A, thematically, is based on attendance areas to the extent possible. Scenario 5 was created as north-south “strips.” All 6 maps are available for review on the District’s website here: www.cv.k12.ca.us/draftmaps/ As always, we encourage your continued participation and input during the last and final public hearing on June 28th. If you cannot attend and wish to review and/or comment regarding the proposed map options under consideration, please submit your comments and feedback to email@example.com, via ThoughtExchange, or comment via telephone at 510-537-3000 extension 1211. All map preference feedback will be relayed to the Board prior to its discussion and adoption of a map option.

Map Options for CVRA Transition from “At-Large” To “By-Trustee Area” Elections June 5, 2023 Dear Castro Valley Unified School District Community: As the District continues to move through the process of transitioning to “by-Trustee-area” elections under the legal requirements of the California Voting Rights Act (CVRA), we have reached a critical point. The District is releasing four map options to the community for study and input. All four of the map options being considered meet the legal requirements outlined in CVRA. The District is providing three in-person opportunities to the community to review and provide feedback over the next month before the Board of Education votes on June 28, 2023 for a map that will be put into effect for the next Board elections in 2024. This release of map options comes at the end of the “Pre-Map” period wherein the District engaged the community with two public hearings to solicit input before drawing map options. Each map option for consideration:
Meets the equal population requirement (that each trustee area have equal population with up to a 10% variance);
Increases the voting power of the largest protected classes in the District (Hispanic/Latino; Asian; and African American) by Citizen Voting Age Population (CVAP/eligible voters) in at least one Trustee Area based on up-to-date CVAP statistics compared to District-wide averages – including at least one Trustee Area per map with an Asian plurality by CVAP;
Complies with the Federal Voting Rights Act;
Respects communities of interest as much as possible;
Is compact and contiguous as much as possible; and
Follows man-made and natural geographic features as much as possible.
