Larry Nyland was appointed interim Seattle Schools District superintendent Friday, July 18, 2014.

SEATTLE — The Seattle School Board chose Dr. Larry Nyland as the permanent superintendent for Seattle Public Schools.

The school board made the announcement late Wednesday.  Nyland has been the interim superintendent since last summer.

“I have chosen to evaluate Dr. Nyland not only on his last 17 weeks in Seattle Public Schools, but his past 40 years in education,” said Sherry Carr, Seattle School Board President.

Following the 5-2 vote, the board can now negotiate a new contract with Nyland which would be voted on next month. If approved, Nyland’s contract would be extended through June when he would officially switch from interim to permanent superintendent.

“We have a lot of work to do to support systems, and to better support students, said interim superintendent Dr. Larry Nyland. “I look forward to working with them. Thank you.”
