San Diego Unified Names Kevin Beiser New Board President

Board Trustee Marne Foster Named Vice President



SAN DIEGO — (December 11, 2013) On Tuesday, December 10th, San Diego Unified School Board of Trustees elected Kevin Beiser its new President and fellow Trustee Marne Foster as Vice President.


“I look forward to working together to continue improving public education with quality schools in every neighborhood,” Beiser said shortly after the meeting.


Beiser was elected to the Board of Trustees in 2010 representing District B and is also a Math teacher. Prior to his election, Beiser’s work with his students earned him “San Diego Math Teacher of the Year” honors in 2008-2009.


“My experience in the classroom, working side by side with school administrators and parents alike has given me a unique insight as to how the policies that are developed by the Board and the Superintendent’s office affect those of us on the front lines,” Beiser said. “I’m honored that my Board colleagues found that experience helpful and I look forward to working with Superintendent Marten to continue creating a world-class classroom experience for our students.”


Beiser had served as Board Vice President for one year and hands that position over to San Diego native Marne Foster, who represents District E. “I'm excited!” said Foster. “I look forward to continuing this work to create the conditions where ALL students can succeed, and value the listening and collaborating with SDUSD internal and external stakeholders to make it happen."
