EDMONDS — Deb Clemens, one of three finalists for Edmonds School District’s superintendent, has accepted the position of superintendent for the North Thurston School District.
Clemens is superintendent of the 4,500-student Cheney Public Schools district.
Two other candidates are scheduled to meet with the school board and staff this week. They are: Kris McDuffy, superintendent of the 5,300-student Arlington Public Schools and Chrys Sweeting, assistant superintendent of instruction, learning, curriculum and assessment for the 21,000-student Puyallup School District.
