SDSU Superintendent Appointed to California Commission on Teacher Credentialing
San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten has been appointed to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. Governor Newsom appointed Marten to the commission that oversees certification and discipline of California educators last month.
Marten has served as SUSD’s superintendent since 2013. She is also a member of the Commission on Gang Prevention and Intervention, the Superintendency Council for the Association of California School Administrators, the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team, and the State Superintendent’s District and County Superintendent’s Advisory Committee, according to City News Service.
“The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing is an agency in the Executive Branch of California State Government,” according to its website. “It was created in 1970 by the Ryan Act and is the oldest of the autonomous state standards boards in the nation. The major purpose of the agency is to serve as a state standards board for educator preparation for the public schools of California, the licensing and credentialing of professional educators in the State, the enforcement of professional practices of educators, and the discipline of credential holders in the State of California.”
