Tell us: What should top Nyland’s to-do list for Seattle schools?

Larry Nyland

If there’s one thing Larry Nyland has, it’s experience.

The new leader of Seattle Public Schools, offered the permanent job on Wednesday, started his first superintendency in 1982, in Pasco. He’s also held administrative positions in Alaska, Shoreline and Highline, before becoming Marysville superintendent in 2004.

Seattle School Board member Sharon Peaslee said Nyland’s ability to lead districts through tough times is one of the key reasons she recommended the board extend his contract through June 2017. The motion was approved with a 5-2 vote on Wednesday.

“We need his steady, clearheaded and highly skilled leadership to stabilize the district and fix what’s broken,” Peaslee said.

Regardless of whether you support the board’s decision, what do you think Nyland’s top priority should be in the coming weeks and months? Vote in the poll below, and explain your pick or offer others in the comments section.
