Reopen SDUSD Class Action Lawsuit

 Dear SDUSD Friends and Families! 

This is an important update to our campaign. As you know, “Reopen SDUSD” has joined families the entire school year asking Cindy Marten and the San Diego Unified School Board to reopen our schools with definitive options for in-person learning. To this day, San Diego Unified continues to deny the needs of our children and families. 

We have serious concerns that SAN DIEGO UNIFIED has failed to properly educate our children during this pandemic. Under California law, school districts are required to provide students with a minimum number of instructional hours. While a pandemic is unusual, it does not excuse the District’s responsibility to provide instructional hours, as they have done during wildfires, excessive snow or rain and other events that close schools. 

SDUSD may have violated the law by failing to provide sufficient instructional hours during the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years and have left it to parents to make up for any loss of education, after taking millions of dollars to safely reopen San Diego schools. 

As we have earnestly strived to communicate with the District, we were being advised that the only way for SDUSD to take parents seriously is to file a suit against the District. 


This is where we need YOU! If you are a parent with a child who was enrolled during the 2019-2020 school year and / or currently enrolled at San Diego Unified, this is the time for you. We need families who are willing to be a named plaintiff in this class action case to hold SDUSD accountable. 

The Class will be represented by a retired California judge who is focused on educational issues. Marc Levine founded a law firm to directly help families deal with the failures of school districts and to provide students with educational programs that comply with state and federal laws. The good news … there are NO court costs for the parents to bare! Neither is there a guarantee an award in any amount for plaintiffs. 

If you are interested in exploring whether you would like to be a named plaintiff in a class action suit, or if you are a parent of a child in special education, ELL or have limited access to technology, please contact Mr Levine to discuss your situation. There is no obligation on your part to do anything and you will not be charged for this consultation. 

Please contact Marc Levin at (310) 774-0086 or 

For parents of children in special education or who have children who might require special education, there are different issues that need to be addressed individually and that we should discuss so you are aware of all of your options. Please contact Mr. Levine to discuss your options. 

Parents of English Language Learners (ELL), students with limited English proficiency, or those with limited access to technology, should contact Mr. Levine directly so that they can discuss their specific issues and how the firm might be able to help.
