SDUSD BUDGET SCANDAL NEWS FLASH!!!!! Supt. Marten Management Disaster Doubled – Wrong San Diego Unified School District Employees Get Pink Slips!!!!


San Diego Unified Supt Cindy Marten Management Disaster Continues

District Deeds has learned that the Supt. Cindy Marten Administration, the authors of the current 124 million deficit financial management disaster, have now doubled that disaster by incorrectly sending Pink Slips to some of the most vulnerable San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) Employees!

Early reports say that apparently due to a conversion of hourly employees to monthly salaried employees in 2011, when the employee data was entered into the system, the “employee start date” was mistakenly moved to 2011 or 2012 instead of their original hire date years before.  The result is that SDUSD Employees with longer tenure got Pink Slips instead of those with less tenure.

The first reports came from the PARA SDUSD Employees, but more may have been affected.

This isn’t the first Pink Slip Blunder by the Marten Administration,

District Deeds reported back on May 1, 2015 where Marten sent private Principal Pink Slip information to the wrong Principal addresses.

The SDUSD Stakeholders would expect that after that breach of confidentiality that a complete review of the Human Resource database to verify accuracy.

But, as we have learned with the current $124 million deficit mismanagement, Marten and her Senior Management appointees are not capable or experienced enough to even know what to look for.

This Human Resource failure by Marten has incurred human misery damage.

Our insider contacts have described employees, many with decades of service, frantically calling their Union Representative in tears wondering why they were the ones chosen to be fired when others with less tenure received no Pink Slip at all.

Tragically, employees in the lowest paid positions, with the fewest financial resources, some with limited English language fluency, were sent a letter by mistake, in English, taking away perhaps their only source of income for themselves and their children.

This mistake has been doubled since there are other SDUSD employees in the same desperate financial position, who think they STILL have their jobs because someone else got their Pink Slip!

Here is a sample of the letter to a Noon Duty Assistant, one group of individuals who are generally paid the least but are the SDUSD Employees who keep our students safe at school:


It is a shame, and a scandal, that SDUSD Supt. Cindy Marten is allowed by Trustees Richard Barrera, Kevin Beiser, John Lee Evans, Mike McQuary and Sharon Whitehurst-Payne to continue harming the most vulnerable Stakeholder with her operational management blunders.

As more details become available we will be providing updates…stay tuned!

    Thanks again Disteict Deeds for keeping parents well informed!

    As a mom of two students who will be starting kindergarten and middle school this Fall, I fear for their safety while at school. I will most likely b homeschooling my daughter, but my son, who will be starting kindergarten has an IEP and needs the services in his plan so we are left with no other choice but to continue with SDUSD.

    I will keep a close watch to ensure there is adequate supervision, especially during non-structured activities and continue to learn and advocate at the Community Advisory Committee on Special Education. I invite all stakeholders to attend the CAC’s monthly meetings!


  2. We didn’t have a Noon Duty Assistant at Torrey Pines Elementary in La Jolla a few years ago. Students were left alone with a custodian who asked kids for food everyday and had them feeding him by putting it into his mouth. He also gave girls stuffed animals saying “I guess we’re going steady” and he would barge into the Safety Patrol room when girls were changing.

    He was friends with the Union rep at the school who tried to protect him but thankfully the District office moved him out of the school. The Principal claimed she never knew anything was happening. Parents – DON’T ASSUME YOUR KIDS ARE SAFE!!
