August 27 Superintendent Cindy Marten

San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten
Superintendent Cindy Marten

The new superintendent of San Diego Unified will be Cindy Marten, principal of Central Elementary School in City Heights.

Marten’s appointment was announced at a press conference (February 27, 2013) at San Diego Unified headquarters.

Marten, a 25-year veteran educator, has worked at Central since 2002, first as a teacher, then as the school’s principal. Before that, she worked as a teacher in the Poway Unified School District.

“What an incredible honor,” Marten said. “I believe in the hope and promise of public education in America, but I believe in doing the work to show America what good schools are all about.”

Marten has long been a star of San Diego Unified. She oversaw a dramatic increase in test scores at Central, a school that serves a community where 99 percent of families are low income and 85 percent of students are English learners. School board members have long steered reporters to her school to showcase the district’s success.

From Ms. Marten’s Facebook page: Cindy Marten is deeply committed to creating educational conditions and opportunities that enable all children to become actively literate, contributing and participating members of a democratic society who make a positive difference in the world. Her 25 years as an educator include teaching elementary grades as a classroom teacher and later, serving as a school-wide literacy specialist in the award-winning Poway Unified School District.

At Central Elementary, Marten worked passionately at attracting and retaining high-quality, dedicated staff. She nurtured innovative programs to support her students and staff including: a highly successful biliteracy program, a hands-on school garden program, quality after-school and pre-school programs, employees’ child day care center, and a community health and wellness center for students and their families. Her team’s success was validated by steady and improved student achievement, which included an increase in the school’s Academic Performance Index (API). By 2012 it reached 788, just shy of the state target of 800.
