MARYSVILLE — The search for the person to replace Marysville School District’s retiring Superintendent Larry Nyland continues Saturday with public interviews of the candidates.

The Marysville School Board has picked six people to move forward into the first round of preliminary interviews.

They are Edmonds Assistant Superintendent Tony Byrd, Lakewood Superintendent Dennis Haddock, Mount Vernon Superintendent Carl Bruner, Deer Park Superintendent Becky Berg, Orting Superintendent Michelle Curry and Lake Washington School District administrator Jon Holmen.

Preliminary interviews are scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. Saturday in the school district board room, 4220 80th St. NE, Marysville.

Interviews of the semifinalists are open to the public, but school board members plan to ask the questions. People who attend will be given an opportunity to provide written comments. Finalists are to be selected by the board following the interviews Saturday.

Interviews of the finalists are scheduled for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, with one candidate each day. School faculty and staff, parents, students and other people who live in the district have the chance to meet the candidates in open forums that are scheduled at 11 a.m., 4:15 and 6:30 p.m. each of the three days, also in the district board room.

The superintendent candidates also plan to tour the school district, meet with principals, administrators and the Tulalip Tribes council.
