Superintendent Search

Information and Resources for Community, Staff, and Candidates
Dr. Nyland has served as superintendent of the Marysville School District for the last nine years.  He has announced his retirement at the end of this school year.  Gail Miller, assistant superintendent, will also be retiring at the end of this school year.  Marysville has accomplished many great things over the recent years thanks to our dedicated staff and community partnerships.  Our goal is to find a great new superintendent that will build on the foundation that we already have and take us to even greater success.  We hope to have the new superintendent selected by March 30th (starting date July 1st) – in time to participate in the selection of the new assistant superintendent.
