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.
