SDUSD Superintendent Cindy Marten’s First Day On The Job

We're sorry. This audio clip is no longer available. A transcript has been made available.

Today marks a change at the top at San Diego's largest school district. Cindy Marten takes over as superintendent for the San Diego Unified School District.

Marten's appointment to replace Superintendent Bill Kowba surprised many. The former principal of Central Elementary school in City Heights was named to the post without the board conducting a formal search or asking for community input.

Marten tells us her plans for the district and how she'll spend her first day on the job.
