Association of African American Educators, San Diego Unified School District, San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten, SDUSD Trustee Kevin Beiser, SDUSD Trustee Marne Foster, SDUSD Trustee Mike McQuary, SDUSD Trustee Richard Barrera, SDUSD Trustee Sharon Whitehurst -Payne
According to an email and Letter to District Deeds, it is obvious that the commitment to implement the “Blueprint to Accelerate the Achievement of African American/African Students” has been ignored by the San Diego Unified School District Board (Trustees Richard Barrera, Kevin Beiser, Sharon Whitehurst-Payne, John Lee Evans and Mike McQuary and Superintendent Cindy Marten) so a NEW Coalition has been formed to address this travesty.
Here is the email forwarded to District Deeds:
The new group is called the African American Student Success Coalition (AASSC)
According to the attached AAAE/AASSC Call To Action Letter forwarded to District Deeds:
The purpose of this letter is to demand immediate implementation of the Blueprint to Accelerate the Achievement of African American/African Students – AAAE/AASCC
The group goes on to repeat the “promise” made by the Supt. Marten and the Board:
The AAAE has been in partnership with the San Diego Unified School District for the past six years working to develop implementation strategies for the Blueprint– Policies and Procedures; Graduation Rate; Gender-Specific Needs; and Parent/Family Support.
Since 2010, the San Diego Unified School Board directed the Superintendent to convene a Task Force that has scheduled meetings to review and provide input on the Blueprint. Over the past few years, the Task Force has continued to meet and develop recommendations that include scope, proposed actions related to each of the four Focus Areas, budgetary implications, a prioritized implementation plan, and a proposed timeline to address the needs of our African American and African students. – AAAE/AASCC
As usual, as they do with ALL so-called fake Community Collaboration, the Board and their incompetent Supt. Cindy Marten has IGNORED the Task Force:
However, to no avail, none of the task force recommendations have been implemented to complement and comply with federal mandates, California Education Code, district policy, collective bargaining agreements and other authoritative directives. Furthermore, none of the taskforce recommendations to implement targeted programs and services for African American students have been built to support the staffing and budgeting realities of the district during this prolonged statewide fiscal crisis. – AAAE/AASCC
The letter was signed by the following members of the AASCC:
The African American Student Success Coalition
1. AAAE Executive Board
2. Urban League of San Diego
3. Black American Political Action of California, San Diego Chapter
4. San Diego NAACP
5. Mr. Wendell Bass
