San Diego Unified Board of Education, San Diego Unified School District, 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, SDUSD Trustee Sharon Whitehurst -Payne
Last year, the 2015/2016 school year was considered by many to be one of the worst of all time for the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD).
After all, a Board of Education Trustee, Marne Foster, was convicted and removed from office for the first time in SDUSD history.
Superintendent Cindy Marten was a willing collaborator with Foster in some of her misdeeds including Foster’s improper operational intervention at the Lincoln and SCPA High Schools but faced no repercussions for doing so.
Last year about this time, District Deeds presented SEVEN posts for the Cindy Marten 2015/2016 Performance Evaluation evaluating both Supt. Cindy Marten and her Board of Education Trustee “enablers” Richard Barrera, Kevin Beiser, John Lee Evans, Sharon Whitehurst-Payne and Mike McQuary.
Not so surprisingly, none of the evidence in those posts changed the mind of Marten’s Trustee cronies.
Despite Marten’s 2015/16 12 Month Disaster, Trustee Sharon Whitehurst-Payne instead wrote Marten a “Love Letter” evaluation.
Superintendent Cindy Marten has created an even BIGGER disaster of the 2016/17 School Year right under the noses of her Trustee cronies.
The Board of Education, in private session on Thursday, July 13, 2017, will be creating the 2016/2017 Supt. Cindy Marten Evaluation…and Tuesday, 7/11/17, is your last chance to tell the Trustees what you REALLY think about this year full of Marten disasters at the 5:00 meeting at the Brucker Education Center.
What do you think about Marten’s performance…
In creating a $124 million deficit through her financial mismanagement?
In firing hundreds of dedicated SDUSD Employees?
In lying to all Stakeholders using the phony “structural deficit” excuse?
In testifying under oath that “it depends” if sexual activity between kindergarteners is a serious incident?
In trying to improperly implement a six month email deletion policy, breaking 5 Board Governance Policies without Board approval?
In the Lincoln 59 Disaster where the Lincoln Middle College initiative was mismanaged to the point of the Community College District having to grant special waivers for students who had no textbooks, no lesson plans, no resources in place and had been virtually abandoned by the Marten Administration throughout the school year.
In her ignoring the Lincoln High School Community choice for Principal and then further betraying the Community by caving in but only approving their choice as an “interim” Principal and also appointing one of her personal cronies with less credentials and no Admin certification as his “mentor”.
In NOT following SDUSD Guidelines and Policies in AP Testing and allowing over 500 students at Scripps Ranch High School to have their AP tests invalidated.
…and that is just since JANUARY, 2017!!!
ALL of these debacles caused by Supt. Marten inexperience and incompetence has been worsened by her total lack of transparency and accountability.
The SDUSD work and learning environment has NEVER been as toxic or as harmfull for all Students, Teachers, Parents, Staff Principals and other Stakeholders.
We urge our readers to either attend the Board Meeting Tuesday night at five or call/email the SDUSD Trustees through the Thursday closed session meeting and voice your opinion. If you like, copy your emails to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so they know you are part of the informed electorate! We would love to see what you have to say about Marten’s performance. We promise not to publish any unless you give us written permission.
Who knows, maybe Marten will only get a “Like Letter” (instead of a “Love Letter) evaluation this year from her enabling Trustee cronies!!!
