    This is the first time that parent leaders from various groups, including the Parent Teacher’s Association and District Advisory Council, have come out in support of Marten since her new position was announced.

    “We will not have to seek her out,” said District Advisory Council Amy Redding. “She will seek us out.”

    Redding and other parents said that Marten’s beliefs align with their goal of academic success for the thousands of students in SDUSD.
