Ms. Carpenter here!! I am the new COST Specialist at Hayward High School. I have been working for HUSD since 2018. I work with the COST team to help maximize and expand available resources at our school and increase our school's capacity to respond quickly and appropriately to a wide range of student needs.    I am excited to have the opportunity to work with the Farmer Family.
