San Diego Unified BRAIN DRAIN!

San Diego Unified BRAIN DRAIN

Mr. Phil Stover, another highly qualified Administrator who left the SDUSD during the current Elementary School Superintendent Cindy Martens’ “Brain Drain“, has been selected as Interim Superintendent of  the Sweetwater Union School District.

Mr. Stover represents the 3rd San Diego Unified Assistant or Deputy Superintendent (along with numerous highly credentialed, experienced Principals and Senior Administrators) passed over by the selection of current Superintendent Cindy Marten with no community or SDUSD Stakeholder input.

Unfortunately this is just another sad reminder that Elementary School Superintendent Marten – with barely 4 years of ELEMENTARY Principal Experience and NO District Administrative Experience was chosen over:

Congratulations Mr. Stover…we KNOW you have the credentials to do a GREAT job for ALL the Sweetwater Union School District Stakeholders!

Please remember….We Miss Your Skills and Collaboration…and those of your fellow REAL Superintendent colleagues!

But given the poor leadership and sad state of the Marten SDUSD Administration…

You ALL obviously made the right choice.
