San Diego Unified School District (also known as San Diego City Schools[citation needed]) is the school district of San Diego, California. It was founded in 1854. As of 2005 it represents over 200 institutions and has over 15,800 employees. The average teacher in the district makes around $67,000 a year, with a benefit package worth around $24,000 a year.[1] The district includes 113 elementary schools, 24 middle schools, 4 atypical schools, 10 alternative schools, 27 high schools and 25 charter schools.

School board[edit]

The district is governed by a five-member elected Board of Education. Board members are elected by district for four-year terms. As of January 2013 the school board members are: Scott Barnett, Kevin Beiser, John Lee Evans, Richard Barrera, and Marne Foster.[2]

Superintendent[edit]

The superintendent is appointed by the school board. From 2010 through 2013 the superintendent was Bill Kowba, a retired Navy rear admiral. On February 26, 2013, Kowba announced his retirement effective June 30.[3] The next day, February 27, the school board unanimously appointed elementary school principal Cindy Marten as the new superintendent.[4] The quick appointment, without a search process or community input, was described as "highly unusual - virtually unheard of" by the San Diego Union Tribune.[5]
