Seattle to consider naming Nyland permanent schools superintendent

Seattle School Board members plan to vote next week on putting interim Superintendent Larry Nyland in the top post permanently.

Nyland, a former superintendent in Marysville, has been on the job in Seattle for four months since the district’’s last leader, Jose Banda, left to run the school district in Sacramento, Calif.

According to a board briefing paper dated Nov. 26, some School Board members want to negotiate a contract that would keep Nyland in Seattle through June 2017.

Nyland’s current contract expires in June. A search for another permanent superintendent will take several months and use valuable district resources, the board briefing states.

Immediate action is in the best interest of the district, the briefing states.

The board plans to introduce and vote on the proposal at its Wednesday meeting, and would approve a negotiated contract at a  Jan. 7 board meeting, according to the briefing.
