Field narrows to three for Marysville school post

MARYSVILLE — Three finalists have been selected for the job of superintendent of the Marysville School District.

The Marysville School Board on Saturday chose Deer Park Superintendent Becky Berg, Mount Vernon Superintendent Carl Bruner and Tony Byrd, an assistant superintendent in the Edmonds School District, to participate in the final round of interviews this week.

The superintendent candidates also plan to tour the school district, meet with principals, administrators and the Tulalip Tribes council.

Longtime Marysville Superintendent Larry Nyland is retiring at the end of this school year.

On Saturday, a team of interview observers provided written comments to the school board and scored candidates based on a list of search criteria that included student achievement, leadership, community partnerships, budget, student diversity and commitment to Marysville.
