    The 5-2 vote at tonight's Special Meeting of the Board allows Board President Sherry Carr to negotiate a new contract with Nyland, which the board will vote on January 7, 2015. If approved, Nyland’s contract would be extended through June 2017, and his position would switch from interim to permanent once a contract is approved by the Board.
    “I have chosen to evaluate Dr. Nyland not only on his last 17 weeks in Seattle Public Schools, but his past 40 years in education,” said Sherry Carr, Seattle School Board President, applauding his career successes and need for stability in the district. 
    “We have a lot of work to do to support systems, and to better support students," said Interim Superintendent Dr. Larry Nyland. “I look forward to working with (staff and stakeholders). Thank you.”
