San Diego Unified Board of Education, San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten, SDUSD Trustee John Lee Evans, SDUSD Trustee Kevin Beiser, SDUSD Trustee Marne Foster, SDUSD Trustee Mike McQuary, SDUSD Trustee Richard Barrera
Welcome to the Period 1: August, 2015 – November 2015 Performance Evaluation of SDUSD Supt. Cindy Marten.
To get full context of this evaluation, please read:
Here is the Trust Pyramid
Here is the SDUSD Ethics Code:
Period 1: August, 2015
August, 2015 was SDUSD Supt. Cindy Marten Lies Month
In August, 2015, San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten started the 2015/2016 Evaluation Period with one of the BIGGEST LIES of her spotty and undistinguished career.
In August, 2015. SDUSD Supt. Cindy Marten outright LIED to the San Diego County Grand Jury and in turn to 3.211 million citizens of San Diego County.
For Background, the role of the San Diego County Grand Jury “investigates the operations of governmental programs of the County, cities and special districts.” The Mission and Vision are as follows:
Representing the citizens of San Diego County by investigating, evaluating, and reporting on the actions of local governments and special districts. – San Diego County Grand Jury Mission Statement
Enhancing our community by creating a collaborative, cooperative environment leading to improved performance of public agencies within San Diego County.San Diego County Grand Jury Vision Statement
There were numerous lies in Marten’s response to the Grand Jury as we pointed out in our posts in the SAN DIEGO COUNTY GRAND JURY INVESTIGATION SERIES
However the biggest and outrageous LIE that Supt. Cindy Marten told the Grand Jury was in response to the very first “finding”:
Finding #01: The removal of two staff members from the school attended by a trustee’s child was perceived by other staff to have been improperly influenced by a trustee. – San Diego County Grand Jury
Here is Marten’s LIE:
Response: To the extent the District is being asked to agree or disagree whether unidentified staff members at an unidentified school had certain perceptions regarding personnel changes, the District is unable to do so. This would require speculation on the District’s part as to the identity of the trustee, the subject school, the identity of the referenced staff members and their internal mental processes. To the extent it is implied that any staff member was removed from his or her position without adequate cause, and/or that any trustee improperly influenced or attempted to influence staff changes at any District site, the District disagrees with this finding. (Penal Code §933.05(a)(2).) —— Supt. Cindy Marten Grand Jury Response
Marten’s claim that she had no idea the Grand Jury finding related to is an outright lie.
Besides the Fact That District Deeds and virtually all of the local news organizations had been reporting the SCPA issue, the Union Tribune published an article 3 months earlier titled “Report: School board controls needed – Grand jury examines trustee’s meddling in son’s school” that named the former Trustee Marne Foster and SCPA and included a quote from Marten!
Period 1: September 2015
SDUSD Supt. Cindy Marten with No Senior Management Experience or Credentials = Management Incompetence
September, 2015 was SDUSD Supt. Marten Management Incompetence Month
In September, two San Diego Unified Employees – a Principal and a Teacher – provided District Deeds WHISTLEBLOWER letters that exposed Martens Management Incompetence
“Principal Pro” in “WHISTLEBLOWER – LABOR DAY EDITION – “Principal Pro”: How the New Teacher SDEA Contract Makes the Principal’s Job Impossible” pointed out how the inexperienced Supt. Marten coimpletely botched the SDEA (Teachers) Union negotiations and sold out all of the SDUSD Stakeholders, especially the Principals.
“Concerned ELL Teacher” in “WHISTLEBLOWER – ELL Update from “Concerned ELL Teacher”: “ELs Are AGAIN Being Robbed!!!”” eposed the total lack of concern and administrative skill in supporting English Learners (EL) and English Language Learner (ELL) Teachers with adequate operational and teaching strategies and tactics.
September, 2015 was a microcosm of the intentional blunder of the SDUSD Board of Education to hire Mareten
As we pointed out 2 years ago in the “Anatomy of a Failed Superintendemt” Series”, Supt. Cindy Marten was specifically chosen because she did not have any of the required credentials. Having no credentials would force her to do the bidding of Trustees Richard Barrera, John Lee Evans, and Marne Foster and cave in to the SDEA contract demands. In turn. Barrera, Evans and Foster would be supported for re-election by the SDEA.
Unfortunately the unexpected result of the horrible decision by the Board to appoint Marten is that she has no credentials in rolling out a huge ELL plan to a huge school district. As we pointed out after she destroyed the English Language Support Teacher (ELST) framework for strictly budget reasons, (to help finance the SDEA raise), Marten shows no senior curriculum or pedagogy ability to meeting the needs of the EL Students or the Teachers that are trying to help them.
Period 1: October, 2015
SDUSD Supt. Cindy Marten was appointed by the SDUSD Board of Education to INVESTIGATE HERSELF!
October, 2015 was SDUSD Supt. Marten Cover Up Month
The Cover Up we described in MARTEN SCPA STATEMENT ALIBIS EXPOSED SERIES featured Marten’s SCPA Response Data dump that violated FERPA laws by improperly publicly disclosing confidential SDUSD Employee and Student information and containing a myriad of lies, half-truths, misrepresentations, omission of fact and total obscufation.
Perhaps the most ridiculous feature was that SDUSD Board of Education Members Richard Barrera, Kevin Beiser, John Lee Evans and Mike McQuary appointed SUPT. MARTEN TO INVESTIGATE HERSELF!
The Cover Up by Marten was massive as evidenced by the following quote from the Alibi’s Exposed “Summation“:
In this SUPT. MARTEN SCPA STATEMENT ALIBIS EXPOSED Series District Deeds has identified 81 Public Trust, Board Bylaw or Legal Violations in the 2,249 words of the 9-29-15 Cindy Marten SCPA Support Documentation
That breaks down to ONE PUBLIC TRUST, BOARD BYLAW OR LEGAL VIOLATION EVERY 28 WORDS OF MARTEN’S STATEMENT! – District Deeds Alibis Exposed Summation
The MASSIVE Supt. Cindy Marten Cover Up completely betrayed the Trust of ALL SDUSD Stakeholders and San Diego Taxpayers.
Period 1: November, 2015
- Supt. Cindy Marten Breaks Promises to Implement Programs to REALLY Protect Students from School Site Sexual
November, 2015 was SDUSD Supt. Marten Ignores Student Sexual Abuse Month
Guest Writer Judy Neufeld-Fernandez wrote a 3 part series called “SPECIAL FEATURE – GUEST WRITER JUDY NEUFELD-FERNANDEZ – 3 PART SERIES: BROKEN TRUST: Supt. Cindy Marten and the Green Elementary Sex Abuse Case”
The 3 articles gave a full accounting of the Green Elementary Sexual Abuse Case and how the negligence and incompetence of Supt. Cindy Marten led to horrible consequences,
In Part 1 – THE PROMISE , Ms. Neufeld-Fernandez exposed all the false promises and assurances to protect our children from sexual abuse in the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) schools made by Supt. Cindy Marten,
In Part 2 – THE BETRAYAL, Ms. Neufeld-Fernandez answered one simple question:
Could the sex abuse of children in SDUSD schools have been prevented?
The answer was YES…or at least minimized…but has not been preventedthrough the decision of SDUSD Supt. Cindy Marten who, decided to do nothing and actually tried to COVER UP THE ABUSES!
In Part 3 – Questions, Answers, Solutions and Hope, Ms. Neufeld-Fernandez gave all concerned SDUSD Stakeholders some definitions and solutions to directly identify and understand the conditions that contribute to the sexual abuse of students in the SDUSD.
When an assigned SDUSD Investigator was ordered by Marten to cover up the Green Elementary Sexual Abuse Report and then, when he refused, was fired by Marten for refusing as we described in LAWSUIT BOMBSHELL!!!! Investigator Claims SDUSD Superintendent Cindy Marten ORDERED COVER-UP IN SITE SEXUAL ASSAULT REPORT!!! she again, for the 4th month in a row, totally breached of the SDUSD Ethics Code.
