Meet and Greet Interim Superintendent Nyland

Seattle Public Schools Interim Superintendent Dr. Larry Nyland to host meet and greet opportunities for families, students, staff and the community
UPDATED

POSTPONED: Superintendent Meet & Greet Monday, Sept. 29, in West Seattle
 
Due to potential family scheduling conflicts, Seattle Public Schools is rescheduling the Monday, Sept. 29, Superintendent meet and greet at the Neighborhood House in West Seattle.
 
We’ve recently learned the Seattle Housing Authority is holding a meeting about its proposal for rent changes at the same date and time at the High Point Community Center. We are rescheduling out of respect for many of our families’ desires to attend both meetings.
 
The new date for the Superintendent’s meeting will be in late October to ensure families have time to plan and attend both meetings. 
 
We apologize for the short notice and we will send you information on a new date for West Seattle families and community soon. 

Original Posting 

Dr.Larry Nyland, who was appointed by the School Board in June to serve as Interim Superintendent, has outlined several opportunities this fall to meet with community members.

These informal gatherings will include a few short remarks from Dr. Nyland, followed by time for an open question and answer period.

“I look forward to continuing to get to know our students, families, staff and community members,” Dr. Nyland said. “I want to hear from our school communities about what’s going well in our schools, where we can improve and how I can best serve this school district’s mission of ensuring every student graduates prepared for college, career and life.”

The following one-hour informal meetings are open to the public:

·         Wednesday, October 1 from 8:30-9:30 a.m. at John Muir Elementary, 3301 S. Hornton St., Seattle WA 98144 (Spanish, Somali, Vietnamese interpreters will be available)
