Marysville names three finalists for school superintendent

Linda Shaw, The Seattle Times, March 23, 2013

The Marysville School Board has named three finalists to replace Superintendent Larry Nyland, who will retire at the end of this school year.

All three are from Washington state school districts:  Becky Berg from Deer Park, Carl Bruner from Mount Vernon, and Tony Byrd from Edmonds.

Board members interviewed five semifinalists in sessions that were open to the public.  Observers were asked to provide written comments and score the candidates based on a number of criteria.

The finalists are scheduled to visit the district next week, and the district is holding public forums so that parents, students, staff and other community members can meet them.  The schedule is posted on the district’s website at:
