San Diego Unified School District Extends Superintendent’s Contract
Thursday, July 31, 2014
San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten's four-year contract has been extended for an additional year.
In a joint statement released late Tuesday night, the Board of Education said Marten embraced the board's vision for improving the district. The trustees praised her for putting teaching and learning at the center of the organization, reaching out to the community and a broad range of stakeholders, being attentive to all levels of operation, creating a strong team of leaders who share her passion for improving student achievement for all students, and developing strong multi-year budget strategies.
U-T San Diego reports "Marten’s four-year contract comes with built-in pay raises, the first of which kicked in July 1 — increasing her salary from $255,000 to $261,000."
The former award-winning principal at Central Elementary School in the economically disadvantaged neighborhood of City Heights succeeded Bill Kowba last summer.
She said she was "gratified by the board's confidence" and "excited to continue this important work alongside extraordinary educators and staff in ensuring we serve the needs of all of our amazing students."
