Men’s Club Speaker Series:
Innovation and Safety in Our Schools
Cindy Marten, Superintendent, San Diego Unified School District
Sunday, August 18, 7:00 p.m.
Superintendent Martin will speak about educational innovations in the city schools as well as steps that have been taken to keep our children safe. She will then answer questions from the audience. This event is open to all who are interested.
Cindy Marten grew up in a home in which achievement was taken as a given. She has deep roots in the San Diego Jewjsh Community. Her mother, Fern Siegel, served as president of both Jewish Family Service and Temple Emanu-El. Her late father, Donald Cohen, was both an attorney and a certified public accountant. The School Board unanimously chose her to lead the district as Superintendent when her predecessor retired.
Following Ms. Marten’s remarks and the question-and-answer session, there will be a dessert reception prepared by the TIS Sisterhood Kiddush Katerers.
Admission to this event is $10 per person in advance or at the door, to cover the cost of the event including security.
