MSD School Board Selects Interim Superintendent

Dear Monroe School District Community -

After today's interviews for the interim superintendent for Monroe School District, the school board voted unanimously to offer the position to Dr. Marci Larsen, contingent on the successful negotiation of a contract.

Dr. Marci Larsen recently retired as Superintendent of the Mukilteo School District where she served in that role for almost 17 years. Dr. Larsen's other professional experiences include: Executive Director of Teaching and Learning; Director of Curriculum, Assessment and Learning Technology; Principal; Assistant Principal; and Elementary Teacher. She obtained her Doctoral Degree in Leadership & Policy Studies, Curriculum & Instruction, and Business Administration from the University of Washington. Her Master's Degree in School Administration and Bachelor's Degree in Special Education and Speech Pathology & Audiology were obtained from Western Washington University. Her community leadership and service include: Economic Alliance of Snohomish County Board of Trustees; Washington Association of School Administrators; Snohomish County Volunteers of America; YMCA Board; Washington Alliance for Better Schools; Rotary and the United Way of Snohomish County Board.

Thank you to our community for being an important part of the process today. The feedback that we received was invaluable as we discussed the candidates and made our final decision. We are excited about the direction that our district is headed and look forward to Dr. Larsen officially joining our team.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Bumpus
MSD Board President
